"Satellite of Love" is a song written by Lou Reed which was sung by Joel Robinson, the bots, the Mads and Jack Perkins during a trip the SOL crew made to Earth. A few years later, Mike Nelson and the Bots would perform a more accurate rendition of the song while they were briefly on Earth.

Lyrics

JOEL
Satellite's gone up to the stars
Things like that drive me out of my mind
We're only here a little while
Do you like to watch things on TV?
