Thank you!!!!!! (I hadn't seen these two previouslies, previously). This is a gorgeous thing and only serves to further my inappropriate crush on Sagan and his turtlenecks. I just watched all of the videos in a row and it's great how much better the makers of these are getting at taking advantage of the quirks of the autotune thing.

Not to be too much of a dweeb about it, but I'm surprised every time at how emotional I get while watching these. It certainly is an amazing opportunity, being a human being.

Can someone please make a Symphony of History of Science with James Burke autotuned?

I liked the 1st SoS video, but they're sort of loosing their originality (to me).

And yeah, like benzenedream said ...

I have seen David Attenborough autotuned. My life is complete.

I love these, and they just add evidence to my hypothesis that everything in life would be made better if it was autotuned.

Okay, there's now enough of these songs and videos that I think we can all get together, drop some e and get all huggy and kissy with each other with these videos playing on giant screens surrounding us and our glowsticks.

or did we already do that on Big Gay Tuesday?

Honestly, I think these are getting even better with each one, more developed and complex. I still love A Glorious Dawn, but the other two are amazing, this new one particularly. And if you haven't check out some of the remixes! Those are really nifty! I really particularly am liking the Triobelisk remix.

Carl Sagan came to my 3rd grade class to present his book "Dragons of Eden". To 8 year olds. He was awesome that way. (Plus, his son Nick was in the class).
I consider my not being a scientist just based on that day a personal character flaw.

these make me so happy. There's something infectious, especially about Sagan's absolute enthusiasm and love for what he's talking about.

That makes me want to grab people in the street and say, "HAVE YOU HEARD THIS?"

At Burning Man.

Just when you thought Sagan couldn't get any cooler you find out that autotuned he sounds a lot like Kermit the Frog.

I hope you still feel that way when the autotuned creditors and telemarketers start calling.

I really love these (as is obvious from my posting the first one on the blue). I think the awe and beauty they express is a side of science that everyone needs to see.

Still, I think they have been declining in quality a bit. This last one is the only one that I didn't listen to dozens of times in the first day it came out.
