TMBG: Science is Real
Check out this new music video from They Might Be Giants entitled Science is Real.
It’s from TMBG’s‘ new CD/DVD, Here Comes Science, which is only being sold on Amazon as a CD/DVD on Tuesday and right now on iTunes. Me no on John & John’s publicist’s list so me not have advance copy and me opposed to world’s largest digital downloader, so me rely on you to tell me level of awesome.
Here’s another track from the CD, Electric Car.
Here’s the track list:
- Science Is Real
- Meet the Elements
- I Am a Paleontologist w/Danny Weinkauf
- The Bloodmobile
- Electric Car w/Robin Goldwasser
- My Brother the Ape
- What Is a Shooting Star?
- How Many Planets?
- Why Does the Sun Shine?
- Why Does the Sun Really Shine?
- Roy G. Biv
- Put It to the Test
- Speed and Velocity w/Marty Beller
- Computer Assisted Design
- Solid Liquid Gas
- Here Comes Science Bonus Track
- The Ballad of Davy Crockett (in Outer Space)
I’m intrigued to hear what TMBG fans and non-fans think of the Science is Real song. I expect a level of controversy in the general population over an intro line in the song. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
“Science is real. From the Big Bang to DNA.
Science is real. From evolution to the Milky Way.
I like those stories about angels, unicorns and elves
Now, I like the stories as much as anybody else.
But, when I’m seeking knowledge, either simple or abstract
The facts are with science. The facts are with science.
Science is real. From an anatomy to geology.
Science is real. From astrophysics to biology.
A scientific theory isn’t just a hunch or guess.
It’s more like a question that’s been put through a lot of tests.
And, when a theory emerges consistent with the facts,
The truth is with science. The truth is with science.”
