I should say, we had an earlier link here on the site to an autotuned video with Sagan and Stephen Hawking. Both appear to be done by this group, The Symphony of Science.

The Symphony of Science is a music project created by Washington-based electronic musician John Boswell. The project seeks to “spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through musical remixes.” Boswell uses pitch corrected audio and video samples from television programs featuring popular scientists and educators. The audio and video clips are mixed into digital mashups and scored with Boswell’s original compositions. Two of Boswell’s music videos, “A Glorious Dawn” and “We are All Connected”, feature appearances from Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, and Stephen Hawking. The audio and video is sampled from popular science television shows including Cosmos, The Universe, The Eyes of Nye, The Elegant Universe, and Stephen Hawking’s Universe.

Wiki: Symphony of Science

You can access the music and videos here: http://www.symphonyofscience.com/

You know you’re a mega-nerd when you have listened to these as many times as I have!

Thanks for the update! I have uploaded the refrain to the first song as a ringtone to my iPhone, and I love it!!

I don’t know if it was the melody or a combination of the melody and the lyrics, but it made my day. Tears actually started welling up in my eyes. Okay…Okay…You guessed it, I’m an emotional kinda guy. There, I said it. Lol.

Anyways, thanks for posting that. Ingenius!

A new song from the Symphony of Science. Unfortunately, it appears to be the weakest one yet.

There have since been two more-I listen to all of them at least once a day smile

My favorites, in order-

1) A Glorious Dawn
2) The Case For Mars (I actually contributed a quote-the “sifted the sands of Mars” one)
3) Our Place in the Cosmos
4) The Poetry of Reality
5) We Are All Connected
6) The Unbroken Thread

But I love ‘em all.

No words to describe this. You just have to listen. But here’s a teaser: ever hear Stephen Hawking sing?  grin
