#1 Songs About Math or Science

I'm not entirely sure why hearing about equations in song form is so much more titillating than in lecture or even on television or movie screen.  Nerds can sleep through any engineering lecture, but listening to Tom Lehrer calculate in base 8, or hearing a cube-mate start singing The Galaxy Song under his breath while writing code is an instant upper.  One would think that the set of people cool enough to get albums published would be entirely disjoint from the set of people who think math is recreational; the realization that there is in fact an intersection gives nerds the sense of not having burned all of their bridges.
