ladyofjest: (big bang theory: started with a big bang)
[personal profile] ladyofjest
Behold! My first attempt at a fanmix, in this case a collection of geek anthems for The Big Bang Theory. It was part of a challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] bigbang_land, but I've been wanting to try my hand at putting together a fanmix for a bit. I'm really hoping that the collection works and isn't rubbish: thoughts?

There are no music files, alas. Instead, I've linked to a video for each song (where available). I tried to seek out the geekiest videos available, though!

Enjoy! The mix (and larger covers) are behind the cut!





Geek Delight
A TBBT Fanmix of Geek Anthems



01.
The Touch

(Stan Bush)

You got the touch.
You got the power!


{Video}


02.
The History of Everything

(Barenaked Ladies)

Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology:
It all started with the big bang!
It all started with the big BANG!


{Video}


03.
She Blinded Me with Science

(Thomas Dolby)

When she's dancing next to me,
("Blinding me with science - science!"
"Science!")
I can smell the chemicals.
("Blinding me with science - science!"
"Science!")


{Video}


04.
Fett's Vette

(MC Chris)

My backpack's got jets:
Well, I'm Boba the Fett.
Well, I bounty hunt for Jabba Hutt
To finance my 'Vette.


{Video}


05.
White & Nerdy

(Weird Al Yankovic)

Only question I ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk or do I like Picard?
I spend every weekend
at the renaissance fair;
I got my name on my under wear!


{Video}


06.
Star Trekkin'

(The Firm)

Star Trekkin' across the universe,
On the Starship Enterprise under Captain Kirk.
Star Trekkin' across the universe,
Only going forward 'cause we can't find reverse.


{Video}


07.
The Galaxy Song

(Monty Python)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

08.
Mandelbrot Set

(Jonathan Coulton)

He saw that infinite complexity could be described by simple rules.
He used his giant brain to turn the game around,
And he looked below the storm and saw a vision in his head.
A bulbous pointy form:
He picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret down.


{Video}


09.
Evil Laugh

(Seanan McGuire)

My laugh is an evil laugh! Ha ha ha ha DIE.
It's been really swell, but now it's time to say goodbye.
My sudden inevitable betrayal was the only way
We could end this tale...
My laugh is an evil laugh. Ha ha ha ha DIE.


{Lyrics}
{Sorry, no video available. Sample here.}


10.
Still Alive

(GLaDOS)

Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
