Devo recorded the theme song for Monster Man, a show on the SyFy network about one of Hollywood's most respected monster prop building workshops. "Devo has always loved retro sci-fi," says Devo founder Gerald Casale. "When the stars of the Monster Man TV show approached us about writing a theme song and performing on the show in a video where we are incinerated by  the fire breath of a monster, I had it written in 15 minutes."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
