Today's NYT has an article about folks who write pop music with scientific themes.
All in all, a decent article, though I would quibble with his muscial knowledge a bit. For example, Erard obviously isn't very familiar with Thomas Dolby's work....the title of the song is "She Blinded me with Science" for goodness' sake! Shouldn't he have mentioned Oingo Boingo? What about Brian Eno? But it's pretty obvious from the bands he does mention that he may be a little too young to know much about Eno's work (except maybe as a producer). I'm going to go look through my library for a bit, and see what science-themed music I can come up with.
