The video below, like the one we showed you last week, was produced for an online contest. In this case, Popular Science commissioned singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton to record a soundtrack for its "Future of the Body" issue (August 2005), then invited readers to create videos for the song "I Feel Fantastic." The winning entry, by Andrea Crain, is shown here.
Though this song does not delve too deeply into the science of pharmacology, Coulton clearly has more than a passing interest in science and math. Among the free songs available from his website are Bacteria (based on a Kentucky Fried Chicken training video) and Mandelbrot Set (inspired, I believe, by a course he took from Benoit Mandelbrot at Yale).
