Walking on Planet C

By Kraftwerk


Today I'm simply going for a long walk in this park in front of my Hotel

Today, I'm simply going for a long walk in this park in front of my Hotel in Bremen, Germany. Ever since cancer attacked me about a year ago walking has become part of my exercise routine. I can't wait to see what songs pop into my head when I'm walking around Germany.

I spent a lot of time touring in Germany back in the day. I've got a feeling my internal playlist is going to be loaded with classics. While I'm typing this, I'm tapping out the rhythm of "Trans Europe Express" By Kraftwerk.

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
