Embarrassing Songs of Physics

Songs of Physics.

I'm very glad JJ Thomson got a Nobel Prize for his work, because he was clearly never going to win a Grammy for his lyrical update to Clementine:

In the dusty lab’ratory,
’Mid the coils and wax and twine,
There the atoms in their glory,
Ionize and recombine.

Oh my darlings! Oh my darlings!
Oh my darling ions mine!
You are lost and gone forever
When just once you recombine!
