Default Songs about microorganisms



A while ago I had a CD of songs about microorganisms or
infectious diseases, intestinal distress by a professor at Berkeley
(?). Ring a bell for anyone? Can you send the information?

Cheers,

Martin

Does this mean Yersinia has recorded her Christmas carols?

Tom Lehrer did a song called" I got it from Agnes" which is definitely
microbiological, but may not be the sort of thing you had in mind.

How nice - another Lehrer fan!

There's also the Biochemist's Song Book by Harold Baum. I was about to say
that it was hard to find, when I googles and found it all over the place!
Even on the Wal Mart site... It's more enzymological (of course) but the
citric acid cycle song is good....

Google also turned up this

Well, that was more fun than reading biosafety legislation!

Don't forget "I'll never fall in love again" . The lyrics say:
"What do you get when you kiss a guy
you get enough germs to catch penumonia..."
I use to quote that to my undergraduate microbiology class.

I did an internet search and had no trouble locating a copy.
Really glad to be able to add this one to my library. But my hope had
been that it would contain a song my second year biochemistry
professor sang to class, and alas it does not. For years I have been
hoping to find "The Biosynthesis of Cholesterol" as sung to the tune
Jingle-Bells. I remember very little, but it starts - 'Take an
acetate, condense it with a mate ....... you have acetoacetate.'
And the refrain goes - ' Farnesol, farnesol, good old farnesol, first
it goes to squalene, then you get cholesterol. Hey!' If anybody
knows where I can find that one, I'd really appreciate the
information.
Somewhat off the microbiology topic, but still on the humor in
science topic, one of my favorite books is 'A Stress Analysis of a
Strapless Evening Gown' edited by Robert A. Baker, Anchor Books 1969.
This is a series of essays by various authors on many different
subjects. But it contains the classic "Hiawatha's Lipid". Great
Stuff! Tom McCloud

Type "good old farnesol" into google.

As the famous Latin saying goes: In Googlis non est, ergo non est.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but you are absolutely correct. A google
search did give me two hits and I've got the lyrics. I should have
thought of doing that. Thanks. Tom McCloud
