Evolution captures a time when a New Wave band could ride cheapo synths and deformed masks to a major-label deal. Most of the clips evoke a nuclear winter where people are less devastated than just really weird: Though many "What the fuck?" moments abound, the clips are full of goofy energy and catchy tunes. Best is Mongoloid, a creepy short by cult filmmaker Bruce Connor that sets Fifties sci-fi clips to an anthem about a guy with Down syndrome.

    “Road to Nowhere”

    Talking Heads | 1985

    A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
