The sounds of science

On the subject of educational children's songs (see below), I heard Here Comes Science, the children's album from They Might Be Giants, for the first time last weekend. It's seriously earworm-stuffed - 'Why Does The Sun Shine?' is like the most intelligent song Blink 182 never wrote, 'Speed And Velocity' has a fair whiff of REM about it - and as for 'Put It To The Test', you have to doff your hat to any band that can write a catchy song about scientific methodology.
