The Electricity Playlist of Phyz

Wow. Electricity seems to be very well represented in the world of popular music.

My Blog of Phyz colleague, Dan Burns, has apparently been making music playlists for years. So I'm giving it a go, too. Seems like great fun. With today's seemingly limitless access to music and the magic of search engines, prospects are good that a number of tracks can be identified for any particular topic. The trick is to steer clear of "E" (explicit lyrics songs).

Playlists can be set to shuffle during lab activities in class, if you're inclined to do such. I put out a call on Twitter, and my initial list of 30 sounds more than doubled. Crowd-sourcing!

My Physics classes just worked through a couple of electrostatics labs and several circuits labs are coming up. I fear the music well may run dry when it comes time to assemble a magnetism playlist.

Here is the electricity playlist (as of today):
