Science-y songs
« on: 27 Feb 2007, 17:32 »

When I am studying for chem I listen to Freezepop's "Science Genius Girl" because it makes me feel smart and motivates me. It is, however, getting old. Please give me more science songs to listen to while I write the complete ground state electron configuration expected for each of the following elements and ions!

"The Sounds Of Science" by the Beastie Boys has science in it's name, does that count?

This isn't really science, but there's this song from Katamari Damacy called "You Are Smart."

It makes me feel smart.

The Flaming Lips' Race For The Prize talks of scientists, and opens a downright brilliant album.

There was also some song about crystal field theory that I got linked to a while ago, but can't remember vaguely where it was.

"The Method" by We are Scientists. It's a great science-y love song.

Steve Burns, Songs for Dustmites.  There are a bunch of songs that mention science-type things.  My favorite is Troposphere.  Besides, this guy was on Blues Clues for years, so he more than qualifies as an educational figurehead.  Right?

I thought that's what this thread was going to start with and was surprised it didn't.

Gryff, everytime you steal the post I was going to make, I am going to pee somewhere that will inconvenience strangers, in the hope that one day, one of those strangers will be you

I honestly thought I had more songs about science on my computer, but the only three I could find have already been listed.

pretty much anything by Logan Whitehurst and the Junior Science club.  Crap, he died late last year and I hadn't thought about that until now.  :(  he was a great musician, the original drummer for the velvet teen.  he left to battle cancer.

What about orgasmic chemistry.

This is the best science-y song ever made.
It's a demo song by We Are Scientists called Spotomatic Freeze,

Here it is!

Pretty much that whole "Post Black /prog/ folk/Avante Garde, whatever..." scene  in Norway\Sweeden incorporates science as a major theme in there lyrics, bands like Borknagar, Lunaris, Spiral Architect, Age of Silence, Vintersorg, Covenant, Thorns, Fission etc...

There's also a lot of albums that take a rather dystopian view about science like Psycroptic's "Symbols of Failure" or In Flames' "Colony"

Carcass used to take lyrics from Medical textbooks and theres probably a few gore bands whom still do...

I guess it depends if your looking for songs that explore scientific themes (Like Astronomy, math, physics, chem, biology scientific ethics etc), or wether you just want bands whom sing about science as a vague and generic subject.

but off the same album there is a far more sciencey song (at least in the title)

(this is off the top of my head so don't shooot me if i get it wrong)
what is the light? (an untested hypothesis that the same checmical in our brains by which we are able to experience love is the same chemical that casued the big bang resulting in our ever expanding universe

The County Medical Examiners! Their albums almost ARE medical textbooks. Full of verses like:

"Between the deceased eyeball's crystalline lens and retina
A clear gel-like mass that constitutes 80% of the eye
This volume of lubricious fluid is named vitreous humor
And can tell the toxicologist relatively when someone died..."

"Environmental conditions of the crime scene are meticulously recorded
And the room temperature of the dissection room is dubiously noted
The core temperature of the carcass plummets through means of convection
Physical science triumphs over life as heat escapes through radiation..."

and

"Soft tissue decomposition formula that expounds and elucidates
...Y=1285/X...
A rough estimate of putrefactive progression to stalwartly vaticinate
...Y=1285/X...
Where Y is the number of days to become completely skeletonized
...Y=1285/X...
And X is the average centigrade temperature with which to surmise
...Y=1285/X..."

5 What Is the Light? (An untested hyposthesis suggesting that the chemical (in our brains) by which we are able to experience the sensation of being in love is the same chemical that caused the "Big Bang" that was the birth of the accelerating universe) ............4.05

Is exactly what the liner notes say. I still think the Race for the Prize is more appropriate as it actually mentions the scientists in the song. Also, it's subtitle is "sacrifice of the new scientists", so it get the same points that What is the Light? gets.

While I'm here:
oh science facts are useful
that's why they teach them to you
your teachers wouldn't screw you
ooooooh
science facts are cool

gee, thanks Lunchy

hah I just google The County Medical Examiners Khar

TCME will release their Relapse Records debut, Olidous Operettas, January/23/2007 The CD, which took them more than a year and a half to write and record, since all three bandmembers live in different states, will feature eight tracks, including "Morgagnic Anatomics," "The Virchow Postmortem Procedure" and "Maturating Decompositional Gas." Dr. Fairbanks described the effort as "somewhere between Symphonies of Sickness and Necroticism-era Carcass" and "not something you would want to put on before church." What makes the disc even more unique, beyond TCME's odd approach to making music is "It will be a scented-face CD, which essentially means it will be scratch-'n'-sniff-able," he said. "Our CD will smell like rotten meat."

I'm amazed that those three people are that dedicated to a cause that includes rotting meat.

Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
