Physics songs:
1. Fun new physics song about Fourier analysis! "Wonderful Wave", set to "Wonderful World", by Sam Cooke. Lyrics by my former student Kent Riley. (Part of our second Wednesday series of physics songs, just a bit late.)  
  2. If this doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will: "Alpha Decay" from the physics sing-along last week at the March Meeting of the American Physical Society. Set to "YMCA", led by APS fellow Prof. Robin Selinger, with Grace McKenzie-Smith leading the dancing! (Instead of "YMCA", she's leading them in "alpha D K".)
