NEWS FLASH: Nobody Likes to Write Essays

Ok, maybe I was asking a little much when I demanded  200-word-or-less essays for two (2) free tickets to the awesome event happening at the Cal Academy of Sciences this Saturday, DAWN 2010, featuring Fool’s Gold, Gary Shteyngart, and more.

So, we’re going to make things a little easier for you:  Science-themed music videos!  In the comments below, list the artist and song title (and a Youtube link would be nice) for your favorite sciency video.  If the song is about science too, even better!  Entries will be judged according to a proprietary algorithm (not really).  You have until 11:59pm Thursday, so get cracking!  And no fair using Carl Sagan et al; that’s too easy.

Pro-tip:  DIY hybrids such as Joy Division’s “Disorder” over scenes from 2001: Space Odyssey and Crystal Castles’ “Black Panther” over scenes from TRON are totally cool.
