A weekend without music is like beer without alcohol. That’s why I’m taking a cue from former MKE editorial assistant Adam Lovinus who used to keep the office filled with wicked beats thanks to a computer andYouTube. Sadly, I don’t have Adam’s skills, but I do have a computer and access to YouTube. So allow me to kick off this weekend right.
This week, in honor of the creation of the first synthetic life form and Pac-Man turning 30, I’ve put together this collection of science and geek songs. Here are the rules: no parodies, no themes, no songs that suck (that means you, The Touch).
My playlist designed for your aural enjoyment is after the jump.
