For those about to dissolve, we solute you!

Mark Rosengarten gets educational.

Thanks to reader 'Lib M' for this tip!

Ticket to Antarctica

This one is a bit different, as there's no lyrics. But given the title and the names of the tracks (and because it's nice) thought I'd list it here.

Ticket to Antarctica, KevOz

Soft Atlas

By 13 and God. Very artsy.

Biology 101

A little hard to follow... good musical value though. By Dr Octagon featuring Chewbucca Uncircumsized, apparently.

Key lyric: Can science achieve a unified theory of complex systems?
Good question.

Baba Brinkman's evolution rap

Not just a song, but the story behind it too. The first ever peer-reviewed hip hop rap.

Giant Isopods Ate My Well-Known Brand of Corn Chip

More of a cult classic than a classic! Giant woodbugs... mmmm... yummy.

There is an album of 17 songs on this topic (really).

1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics

A classic by Flanders and Swan.

The Element Song

An absolute classic from the 60s: Tom Lehrer sings through the periodic table.

Einstein vs. Hawking rap

Part of the Epic Rap Battles of History. Seriously. Created by 'Nice Peter' and Lloyd Ahlquist.

Hard n' Firm, Trace Elements

*WARNING* This country song uses some very colourful language indeed. Not suitable for kids!

Cambrian Explosion

Complete with trilobite t-shirt. Lovely. By John Palmer, of the Brighter Lights, Thicker Glasses band. They must be Canadian.

Mitosis in a winter wonderland

Actually useful for teachers. Thanks, whoever you are.

Ode to the brain

A sampling remix extravaganza.

(Symphony of Science has done a tonne of these. Yay autotune)

The nucleus I like best

Greg Crowther makes plenty o' songs in his spare time.

What we need more of is science

MC Hawking does it again.

Big Bang

The theme song to the hilariously real tv sitcom Big Bang Theory, by the Barenaked Ladies... extended version.

The fracking song

What the frack is going on, with all this fracking going on?? Brought to you by

Caught in a bad project

Parody of Lady Gaga's 'Caught in a bad romance'. The costumes are awesome. And she wonders why it's taking so long to get her degree? Brought to you from the Hui Zheng lab at the Baylor College of Medicine.

Best lyrics: Blot, blot, western baby,
Figure one will be amazing.
Blot, blot, western baby,
Got no bands, this shit is crazy.
