The song Down to Earth for the movie Wall-E, sung by veteran performer Peter Gabriel, has been nominated for both a Grammy and an Oscar. This six-minute song was featured in the animated film Wall-E by Disney and Pixar Studios, and is a perfect compliment to a movie about this trash compactor robot. (His full name is Waste Allocation Load-Lifter Earth-Class. What a mouthful!)
