This is the theme song from the hit Disney movie Wall-E
. It won the Grammy for Best Motion Picture Song in 2009, and was nominated for an Oscar along with 2 songs from the movie Slumdog Millionaire
. Gabriel was asked to perform just one minute of this 6 minute song on the Oscars ceremony in a medley with the 2 other nominees, and he refused, stating: "The songwriters, even though they're a small part of the filmmaking process, we still work bloody hard and I think deserve a place in the ceremony as well. I'm an old fart and it's not going to do me any harm to make a little protest about it for some of the other artists."
