Uncertainty

The Guardian’s ‘Science Weekly’ podcast is rather good, and the episode I’ve just enjoyed finished off with a great song by Johnny Berliner about the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

The classics in this genre are, of course, Flanders & Swann on The First and Second Law of Thermodynamics and Tom Lehrer’s recitation of the periodic table to the tune of ‘I am the very model of a modern major general’. If you like these, I recommend following the link above and scrolling about 22 minutes into the podcast.
