Hi there nedfigthers, I was wondering what nerd music do you listen to?
I don't mean just Wrock or Trock, Nerd Music comes in all shapes and sizes, from a regular pop artist with a nerdy song to the more enthusiastic nerd musicians that sing about how much they love their new laptop, and them off course you have songs with the measurements of the universe, about zombies or about brains. Here are a few favourites of mine:
I thought of a few more songs that belong in here.
In the pop artists with nerdy songs category I wouldn't forgive myself if I didn't mention Nerina Pallot. Her songs are pop songs, no mention of video games, or math or such, but because the artist is herself a total geek that sometimes transpires to her music, here a two examples:
"So hey, you, could you give it a rest?
Just take me home and get me undressed,
Put on a fire and make it enough,
Oh, we're geeks, but we know this is love."
That is something that is bound to happen in a geek relation, right? We geeks tend to ramble, where a regular couple can look at the moon and ... , when a geek looks at the moon it can lead to a 4 hour talk on astronomy, so at some point the partner may have to intervene in a manner not unlike that verse.
"I'm waiting for answers I know are inside
Now my teacher is here I can open my eyes..."
I just love this one, this is exactly what a geek looks for in a relation, not just someone to "love" , but someone to learn from and share knowledge with, simple and beautiful.
And the artist herself is just delightful to watch, see rambles for more then 3 minutes in her videos, she uses lines from Hamlet in one of her songs, she named her piano after a russian composer, and it took me a trip to the Museo Del Prado in Madrid to understand a line from one of her songs, in short, I want to marry her.
You tube doesn't have the songs I quoted but here are two other songs from her:
