The Divine Comedy's Synth Song

I see the Divine Comedy have a written a silly song listing out a whole load of synthesizer names:

Not entirely sure what to make of it. My main thoughts are:

  • All synths namechecked are on the Synth Poster except for some of the post-90’s workstations like the Korg Triton (cos they’re kinda boring)

  • Musically it’s a bit of one-shot novelty song. All the silly kind of sounds that people used to think that the word ‘synthesizer’ represented and thus feels a bit dated. Perhaps that was the idea. Dunno. I don’t think it’s going on any of my Spotify playlists…

Let me know what you think of it!
