I was watching Robin Williams' movie "Bicentennial Man" the other night, enjoying, among other things the spectacle of a robot telling jokes in a rapid-fire, robotic manner.
There was one scene early on where the robot (Williams) is sitting down in the basement, listening to an old Victrola playing "O Silver Moon" from Dvorak's "Rusalka." I always knew that aria could make metal cry!
