Daily Song Share: Automatic, The Pointer Sisters

I really like the writing in this one. I think they use the robot metaphor in a simple but clever way, and it is noticeable that many of the words have three or four syllables, which is uncommon in most charting pop songs.

Ruth Pointer’s voice is perfect for the lead vocal.

This is from the days when they had the right balance of sexy and classy.
