I ♥ Devo

You've probably seen the new Dell commercial featuring music by Devo.

I LOVED Devo in the 80's but I was confused when I heard the commercial because the song was unfamiliar. I thought I knew every Devo song there was!

As it turns out - I was right! I did know all of the Devo songs - except this BRAND NEW song, called "Watch us Work It." It has such great vintage-out-of-the-box Devo sound that you wouldn't know it wasn't written in 1980.

You can see the long version of the Dell commercial here.

Finally! Another Devo fan!

I knew I liked you.

I love Devo, too! And this song is fabulous!

Besides, I enjoy work, I could watch it all day, especially with Devo playing in the background.

Neither my mechanics nor my IT gurus look like that.

A good number of the groups you loved (not all) are still around making new music. They just don't get air-time on the big corporate radio stations. And with Big Music trying to kill the Internet market... you probably won't hear them.

Kraftwerk (German for 'Power Station') - much cooler and more original than DEVO - just came out with a new album late last year.

Ohh, thanks Zendo Deb for the heads up on Kraftwerk. They're favorites around the keysunset shack, too.
