44. David Bowie, “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)” (1982):
From the soundtrack of the 1982 remake of the 1942 movie about a lineage of women who transform into panthers:
45. Devo, “Jocko Homo” (1978):
And this song is a tribute to H. G. Wells’ novel Island of Dr. Moreau, about a scientist who operates on animals to transform them into humans. (The song’s refrain is a reference to the litany recited by the uplifted animals in the book: “Not to go on all-fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men? Not to suck up Drink; that is the Law. Are we not Men?”)
