The 50 Greatest Vocoder Songs

#1. Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five "Scorpio"

Year: 1982

I have a friend who used to do aerobics with her mother to this song. According to Scorpio himself, it was inspired by a Rick James stomach ache, a sexual encounter under a piano, and his "all-around freakiness." I first heard it when my best friend suffered a near-fatal asthma attack and barfed green on our front porch. You don't forget these things.
