The song: "Computer Love" by Kraftwerk
Cowie: "The first song we picked for that one was 'I Need Somebody to Love Tonight' by Sylvester, which is a song that I wanted to use in Season 1, so it stuck around in our ideas folder. When I got the script for the 'First Date' episode it was already in there, so I was like, 'Right on, let's do this.'
"But we challenge each other, which is part of why I feel so lucky to be on this show. Because a lot of times in this job you have all these debates and you end up fighting over ideas, but on this show, we're fighting for the best idea -- not 'my idea' or 'your idea.' And it's so fun to let go of any ownership in collaboration and just find the best thing for that scene. Who cares who thought of it? That's really big for me. I love when [Aziz] thinks of something that's way better than what I thought of. It's like, 'Yes, we're using that.'
"That's where 'Computer Love' came from. We were just throwing all these ideas together about the digital translation of falling in love and Aziz was like, 'This is kinda on the nose but it kinda works.' And I was like, 'You're right. Let's do it.'
