To see the lyrics, click on the name of the version you are interested in (on the left).




At the moment, the song hasn’t been played since the Fin De Siècle tour. The title is a play on Kraftwerk’song ‘Computer Love’. In this love song, Neil speaks about a girl he meets on the train or in the tube. But beyond that, it also deals with the difficulty of meeting people in our modern, individualistic society. The rumours at the beginning and end were recorded in Waterloo Station [1]. If you understand anything, feel free to complete the lyrics.
