Tuesday Tune: “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do”

|

Give me a song that is both funny and educational, and I'm a very happy human. On the theory that such songs will also make you happy humans, my dearest readers, I now present to you one of the greatest geology songs of all time. It's by Greg Flick, an earth sciences teacher at North Syracuse Junior High, and all I can say is I bloody well wish I'd had a teacher like him when I was suffering through those middle-school years. Teachers who bring this much creativity to the classroom are treasures.

But be warned, all ye who click play: this song is a total earworm. I find it cropping up at random months after listening to it.

 

Got geosongs? Bring 'em! I'd like to make this a semi-regular feature, and I'm sure you can find us some awesome science music.
