Cute music about science--for free! :)
If you go to http://www.acme.com/jef/science_songs/, you can download and hear a whole bunch of songs about various scientific topics by Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans, kindly recorded and encoded from the original record by Mr. Jef Poskanzer, to whom I am very grateful. They're intended to introduce children to said topics, but they're also (some of them) really catchy. (Some are laughably corny, but that's part of their charm.) By the by, these are the folks who wrote Why Does The Sun Shine and A Shooting Star Is Not A Star, which TMBG later covered.
I think someone needs to clue Richard in. Some of these are danceable. The longitude/latitude song is to the tune of Ach, Du Liebe Augustin, and is thus a waltz. :)
