There's a surprising amount of science that turns up in music, which is nice as it means that it's working it's way into the public mind. Sometimes it's obvious from the title but the best ones are where they sneak a science term into the lyrics. What I'll do on "busy" days is stick up a "Science Song" and you can work out the connection to science. So as not to be accused of making it too easy the first song I'll give you is Red Hot Chili Peppers "This is the place". I think this has a particularly clever use of a biological term and I wonder if a geek has ever tried to use it as a pick-up line?
