This is quite good, although I’m not any closer to understanding string theory after having viewed it:
io9 (“This physics grad student made a mind-blowing Bohemian Rhapsody cover“):
Question: What do you get when you mix a cappella, sock puppets, string theory and Queen? Answer: The geekiest (and astonishingly good, musically speaking) cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” EVAR. Easily the greatest physics-themed cover of the classic we’ve ever heard. Seriously. The thing’s a masterpiece.
To be fair, “Bohemian Gravity” may well be the only physics-themed version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” ever made, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is very, very well done. The creation of McGill University Masters candidate Timothy Blaise (who posted this link to his recently submitted thesis, along with the video), the track does way more than touch on some of the more confounding elements of string theory; from a compositional standpoint, it also manages to be an outstanding cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” full stop. Also, there’s an Einstein sock puppet. Now who the hell can’t get behind that?
