Physics Songs

Local physicist Walter Smith, who was a speaker at USciences in 2005, has a marvellous site dedicated to songs about physics:

Physics Songs

Included in his collection are songs from the Physical Revue, written by Tom Lehrer and collected by Prof. Norman Ramsey of Harvard, a Nobel Prize winner who happens to be the father of Margaret Kasschau, Associate Provost & Professor Emeritus Department of Biological Sciences at USciences.

Songs about physics are a fun way to explore the subject!
