What are some of your favorite songs with the motorik beat? For those not familiar with the term "motorik", it is music that has a relentless but flowing 4/4 beat. It provides a strong feeling of movement, like driving down the open freeway at a constant but fast pace of speed. The style is considered to have its origins with Mo Tucker in the Velvet Underground, but it was more widely used for the first time by various German bands in the early to mid-1970s, such as NEU!, Can, and Kraftwerk. Brian Eno called it one of the three great beats of the 1970s. However, many bands from all over the world have used the beat in some or many of their songs in the last 40+ years. Motorik - Wikipedia (definition) I'll start things off with one of the songs most associated with the motorik sound, the first song on the first NEU! album, with Klaus Dinger laying down the motorik beat.
