Physics songs:
1. A video of "Ohms Volts & Amps" (set to "Oh Holy Night"), from the Oberlin Physics Songbook, featuring heart-meltingly beautiful guitar, custom recorded by Jared Cattoor! The video is a series of "Lissajous" figures on an oscilloscope -- the physicists version of a lava lamp! 3rd in a monthly series of high audio & video quality physics songs, released on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. (There's also a karaoke version without any vocals.)  
  2. A video of "Coaxial Waves", (set to "Jingle Bell Rock")! "Swing and wiggle in cylindrical sync -- that's coaxial waves!" From the 2015 sing-along at the March Meeting of the APS, featuring Dennis Dietz on guitar.  
  3. As promised, here are guitar chords for the suggested set of six physics carols, and a printer-friendly handout of the lyrics, all ready for your winter holiday physics sing-along!
