Physics in Lyrics

  1. Sep 5, 2006 #1
    Saw the following song (Bound By Time) doing well on a radio contest chart and made me wonder what other physics ideas had been attempted in lyrics:

    Part of lyrics sample:

    "I want to slow time but I do not have the speed.
    Or gravity - I can barely pull my needs"

    Can anyone remember any other songs which incorporate any physics ideas or is that considered too taboo for musos???

    Little Neutrino - Klaatu

    Across your open mind
    I trace erratic lines
    In motion and in time

    I fought a battle won
    To the surface of the sun
    Through fires on and on

    It's only you
    It can't be me
    For I myself refuse to be

    I am someone you'll never know
    I am the little neutrino

    Solus is not far away
    It's face is brighter than a day
    So don't turn me away

    It's only you
    It can't be me
    For I myself refuse to be

    I am someone you'll never know
    I am the little neutrino

    And now I'm passing through
    The one who is known as you
    And yet, you'll never know I do

    I really do

    The BNL song "When I Fall" has the line "9.8 straight down" in it. I always liked that.

    Anyone listen to rap here?

    There is an artist by the name of blackalicious and he does a song called "Chemical Calisthentics" and I think its brilliant.
