See Gary Numan Get Freaky With Sugababes

Every day, we bring you the best thing we've seen on YouTube - a great piece of archive footage, a music promo or a clip from one of our favourite movies or TV shows.

Today: See a great song and video splice of electro pioneer Gary Numan’s “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and pop group Sugababes “Freak Like Me.”

Numan’s robotic Top of the Pops performance from 1979 is spliced with the girl group's 2002 promo video.

The Sugababe’s cover version of Adina Howard’s R&B hit “Freak Like Me” used Numan’s synthesizer instrumental from “Are ‘Friends’ Electric” and he is credited as co-writer of the song.

Wait for the closing minute of the mashup, the songs get more and more overlaid till it definitely sounds electric!
