Snappy tunes and witty science parodies of our favorite songs - sounds like a great way to start the week!
Since my post about scientists producing Lady Gaga music videos a few weeks ago I've received a lot of feedback about the many other awesome music videos being produced in labs across the world. What a wierd and wonderful gamut of science, music and geekiness! I've decided to feature at least one music video each Monday, so please keep the suggestions coming in.
This week's pick: The classic "I WILL DERIVE" by Matthew Kaney, a second year film and video student at the University of Oklahoma, is a parody of Gloria Gaynor's infamous hit 'I WILL SURVIVE'. This unabashedly nerdy look at the confusing world of calculus has amassed over 1.2 million views on youtube, and it's easy to see why. The mix of simple shot sequences, extremely witty lyrics and of course a fantastic song is a winning combination. It's a celebration of the ultimate subject of science geekdom - and everything about it just works.
So enjoy my inaugural pick for Monday's Music Video at PsiVid - ridiculous though it may seem, you will spend the rest of your day thinking about that fantastic CALCULUS video you watched!
