Fantastic ’50’s science songs

Wow

These are, well, they’re delightful. Atomic-age kids songs about the joys of science. They feature the original soure of They Might Be Giants’ “Why does the sun shine”, and loads of other pieces of perhaps the finest empiricist kitsch ever

There is no disputin’,
There is no refutin’,
We’re all indebted to Sir Isaac Newton.

Just when the creationists are getting you down, something like this comes along. Genius. GO LISTEN NOW!

from the x-ray and electron and the quantum theory,
down to Einstein and his formula for mass and energy.
Hip Hooray! We’ve got atomic energy.
It could mean a better world for all.
