The creativity is truly astounding.

I would recommend also downloading the lyrics so you can follow the song a little better, but this is a must-listen for anyone interested in science.

If you don't listen closely, this is an excellent a cappella cover of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
If you listen closely, you will find this even more incomprehensible than 'Bohemian Rhapsody', unless you are a physicist.

On the other hand, this is a musical rendition of this guy's doctoral thesis in astrophysics. What little I could follow was interesting. But that only went about twelve words. On the other hand, I'm a lot more interested in the subject now than I was before I heard this piece.

Above all, the guy seemed to genuinely enjoy himself. This leads to a question; why is that the hard sciences folks can come up with this awesome, fun stuff but the English, American Studies, Gender Studies, Cultural Anthro, and other post-modern, deconstructionist folks not merely fail to produce stuff this awesome, they don't seem to find any joy in their work, and definitely cannot communicate their passion for what they do the way the real science people do.

Delightful video, and a great reason to read more science!

In order to fully appreciate this song you have to first watch the YouTube video. Just go to YouTube and enter "A Capella Science - Bohemian Gravity!" into the search window. The video is over eight minutes long, but well worth watching. He does the entire soundtrack by himself a capella. I don't know if he did all the audio overdubbing edit and video editing as well, but I wouldn't be surprised. He's obviously an über geek of the highest order. He's kind of like Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj from "The Big Bang Theory" all rolled up into one.

And a capella too. The man is awesome, especially since he did all the supporting bits too.

As a previous reviewer said, this song is MUCH better comprehensible on YouTube (channel "acapellascience") because you can see the lyrics. Also, the video - EXCELLENT job on fitting the lyrics in between the pictures and everything. But all around wow first for writing the song, and then performing it so well and the excellent video editing too.

I came here to buy (and review) this song specifically because I want to support this guy's music. He deserves to make it big in science AND music, as far as I am concerned. Even if it is only one video a year, the quality is exceptional, so I'm going to be on the lookout for more from him.

Hey Amazon and Tim Blais - maybe you could bundle the lyrics along with the MP3, even if it is trivial to go over to the YouTube video and copy the lyrics from there...

I'm not a huge fan of a cappella music, but I've always appreciated the effort required for a semi-decent result. This song would be arguably the best a cappella cover I've ever heard even if it was just a straight re-creation. That the new lyrics are so intricate, and exact, *AND THEY RHYME* is nothing short of mind-bogglingly awesome. As previous reviewers have noted, you have to watch the Youtube video to get the full effect of how hard he worked to recreate Queen's most notable song. Singer, producer, director, and he can also write a physics dissertation. It's the sort of intelligence and ability which will set a person up for life in any field he puts his mind to, and restores my faith in humanity.

This is a rewrite of the Bohemian Rhapsody about quantum mechanics and string theory. I would recommend also downloading the lyrics so you can follow the song a little better, but this is a must-listen for anyone interested in science.

There have been plenty of Bohemian Rhapsody parodies, but very few of them pull it off well. This particular fellow not only reproduced the melody and voice via a capella, but then he made lyrics based off one of the most complicated theories currently known to man, M-theory (also given the layman's name of string theory), and not in a random fashion at all, it's fairly cohesive and fluid. If you have a geeky physics friend they will most likely appreciate this if they haven't heard it already. Other disciplines of science (and people in general) may have varying degrees of appreciation for it depending on how well they've investigated overviews of M-theory without probably going through the math (which will leave them out for a few jokes within, but that's ok).

I am not a science nerd, so I have no idea, even reading the lyrics on YouTube, what this song really means. The performance is solid, and it's fun to listen to. This is an easy way for me to support someone doing something extraordinary. Keep up the good work!
