There's always "Psychotherapy" by winsome early 70s Joan Baez-a-like, Melanie Safka.

(ducks for cover as argument begins as to whether Freud was a scientist or not)

--------------------------------------------

PSYCHOTHERAPY (to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic)

Oh mine eyes have seen the glory of the theories of Freud,
He has taught me all the evils that my ego must avoid.
Repression of the impulses results in paranoid
As the id goes marching on.
CHORUS
Glory glory psychotherapy, glory glory sexuality,
Glory glory now we can be free as the id goes marching on

There was a man who thought his friends to him were all superior
And this complex he imagined made life drearier and drearier
Till his analyst assured him that he really was inferior
As the id goes marching on.
CHORUS

Do you drown your superego in a flood of alcohol
And go running after women till you're just about to fall.
You may think you're having fun but you're not having fun at all
As the id goes marching on.
CHORUS

Oh sad is the masochism, the vagaries of sex
Have turned half the population into total nervous wrecks.
But your analyst will cure you, long as you can pay the cheques
As the id goes marching on.
CHORUS

Is your body plagued by aches and pains that you can't understand
Compound fractures ingrown toenails, floating kidneys, trembling hands,
There's a secret to your trouble: you're in love with your old man
As the id goes marching on.
CHORUS

Freud's mystic world of meaning needn't have us mystified
It's really very simple what the psyche tries to hide:
A thing is a phallic symbol if it's longer than it's wide
As the id goes marching on.
CHORUS

Subject: Re: [PSCI-COM] songs about science


Not many people know it, but the introduction to As Time Goes By (made
famous in the film Casablanca) makes reference to Einstein and relativity. I
don't know how the tune goes for the first bit - the rhythm of the words
doesn't fit with the tune for the famous bit.

[This day and age we're living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.

Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein's theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension

And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.]

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

...etc.

Best wishes,

Adam Nieman

Subject: [PSCI-COM] songs about science

Hello all!

I am looking for songs about science, especially from Brazil or other 
Portuguese speaking countries, but all other languages are very welcome. I 
would prefer commercial songs, not composed originally with propose of
science 
communication or education, but again, all suggestions are welcome!.

I hear about a Brazilian song about the discovery of the pi meson (pião),
but I 
can't find it.

Could you help me on this?

All the best,
Ana Rita Claro Rodrigues
