Henry has scored numerous additional films and ballets. Among Henry's best known works is the experimental 1967 album Messe pour le temps présent, one of several cooperations with choreographer Maurice Béjart. Perhaps one of Henry's most well-known influences on contemporary popular culture is the theme song to the TV series Futurama.

The tune is clearly inspired by Henry's 1967 song "Psyché Rock." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
