This is where you can put songs that either about science, or madness (but mostly about mad science!), as well as ones that suit MSW itself, and it's characters, and it's locations.

An obscure song I love, from filker extraordinaire Tom Smith. This one is for Kid Atomic, and it's called Rocket Ride. Here's a YouTube clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jrqaRZ1RIU Not the best, but it's waht I can find.
And here's a link to lyrics. http://www.tomsmithonline.com/lyrics/rocket_ride.htm

Heck, I'll just post them.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
Nothing worth doing that I haven't tried.
There ain't no living on planet-side,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

How many cities crumble into dust
At the first atomic attack?
How many self-aware, wise, and just
Computers will we have to hack?

How many supercars will turn to rust
'Cause we don't have a spare or a jack?
Give me technology we can trust,
And give it fins like a Cadillac.

I want a shining tower of glass and steel,
A rubber jumpsuit and a freeze-dried meal,
The will to survive, the need to explore,
The love of adventure, who could ask for more?

I want you, baby, right by my side,
Help me get out before my brain is fried.
The stars are waiting, so big and wide,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

How many demons out in cyberspace
Will possess every hacker's will?
How many members of a master race
Will come closing in for the kill?

How many xenomorphs will change their face,
And then hunt us down for a thrill?
Give me a villain with style and grace,
And a little bit of fencing skill.

They used to be angular, sneering and bald,
If someone got killed even they were appalled,
They tried to marry the heroine, no thought of rape,
And they sure as hell knew how to wear a cape.

They never tortured, they never lied,
They'd honor a promise if it meant they died.
Let's find a villain with professional pride,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

Terminators, Life Force, Robot Jox, Predators,
Lots of things that know how to flense,
Defenestrate 'em out the doors, gimme gimme Star Wars,
Bring back the Children of the Lens.

Puppet Master, Child's Play, Fright Night, Judgment Day,
Jason, Freddy, Michael, and Stripe,
Let Frankenstein, Ardeth Bey, and Kong chase them all away,
The Movie Snatchers' pods are overripe.

I want more than action and special effects,
To think about what might happen next,
A hero, not a weapons shop with pecs,
A heroine, not an excuse for sex.

I want a bubble helmet matting down my hair,
The ground giving way to the open air,
The joy and wonder as I head out there,
And I know I can have it, if I only dare.

How many bodybuilding macho jerks
Will blow everything full of holes?
How many imitation Captain Kirks
Will spill beer on the ship's controls?

How many stupid personality quirks
Will we see instead of souls?
Give me my baby and a ship that works,
And give us the starring roles.

I want to cruise the galaxy at FTL,
Pursuing Heaven and defying Hell,
I want to do everything that a man can do,
And I want to do it all out there with you.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
Nothing worth doing that I haven't tried.
There ain't no living on planet-side,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
Nothing worth doing that I haven't tried.
There ain't no living on planet-side,
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.
Come on with me, baby, on a rocket ride.

This ones for Axel! (Sorry I don't have a link. Just Youtube it.)
"Bonkers" by Dizzee Rascal
Lyrics!

I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy base line is my kind of silence
Everybody says I've gotta get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Bonkers

I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy base line is my kind of silence
Everybody says I've gotta get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Bonkers

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now

I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy base line is my kind of silence
Everybody says I've gotta get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Bonkers

I wake up everyday it's a daydream
Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
I wake up just to go back to sleep
I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

And all I care about is sex and violence
A heavy base line is my kind of silence
Everybody says I've gotta get a grip
But I let sanity give me the slip

Bonkers

Some people think I'm bonkers
But I just think I'm free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Some people pay for thrills
But I get mine for free
Man, I'm just livin' my life
There's nuthin crazy about me

Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now
Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now
Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now
Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now

No more anthems, still need ideas for my characters. But in the meantime, an odd little website of parody science songs. Stumbled across this hunting for msw kareoke songs once.

Ok here's one from the obscure Dr.Cyborg CD. there are a couple that work from it so I'll post more later.

I woke up in a padded cell
with one way glass, my living hell
a thousand secrets in my brain
If I could just recall my name
now I'm coming back like a cyber-Attack
with truth as my sword
I'm doctor cyborg

You may say I'm paranoid
The golf club is for good ole boys
Who rule the world from the 13th tee
and send their spies out after me

My home nurse tries to tranquilize me
is she a spy? it wouldn't surprise me
searching for time's tower
for my future's past
i met a monster messiah
with a serpent staff
if I can solve these mysteries
then my life
might make sense to me

I'm Dr. Cyborg
My friends at the morgue
Said I was dead
A dismembered head
Now I'm coming back
Like a cyber attack
with truth as my sword
I'm doctor Cyborg.

This one isn't about mad science, though it definitely has some allusions to madness. It's also a song that fits Demothesis and Foigran both very well, though for different reasons.


Please find your place
The room grows scarce
Once we're all inside
The service can begin"

For a moment, if you please
Forget what you believe
And naked, you will see
That we are all the same

But how, your kiss
Your words, your lips
Your flesh, your bones
Exactly what you need

Your flesh, your bones
Exactly what you need

Drum beats louder
Drum beats louder

Why should I feel intrusion?
Why be afraid of what we do not understand?
To eliminate exclusion
Cut out the differences to feel like we belong

Drum beats louder
Drum beats louder
Drum beats louder
Drum beats louder

Open up your head
Open up you primitive
Open up your mouth
And
Open up your head
Your sweet primitive
Open up your mouth
It's coming out

Out there, no food or drink
How many days do you think you'd last
On your diamonds and your pearls?
I'm not a king, no, not a hero, not a fool
I'm not perfect, I'm flesh and bone
And I'm exactly what you need

Drum beats louder
Drum beats louder

Open up your head
Open up you primitive
Open up your mouth
And
Open up your head
Your sweet primitive
Open up your mouth
It's coming out
Open up your head
Scream, you sweet primitive
Tell me what you said
What you said

But how, your kiss
Your words, your lips
Not a gun to your head
You're gonna die before you're dead

Not sad, when you're gone
But when your light's still on
Your dreams wont let you fly
Don't be dead before you die
Hunger, till fed, give love instead
When it gets inside, watch the dead man squirm

Above all things
If kindness is your king
Then heaven will be yours before you reach your end

Open up your head
Open up you primitive
Open up your mouth
And
Open up your head
Your sweet primitive
Open up your mouth
It's coming out
Open up your head
Open up your primitive
Open up your mouth
and
Open up your head
Your sweet primitive
Open up your mouth
It’s coming out

Okay, this is one I think suits Xyon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY_hkrQNAQo
"Take back the city" by Snow Patrol
Lyrics! (Some bits I'm not sure about, but, meh.)

Take back the city for yourself tonight
Or I'll take back the city for me
Take back the city for yourself tonight
Whoa

God knows you put your life into it tons
And it's both cradled you and crushed
But now it's time to make your own demands
Whoa

All these years later and it's killing me
Your broken records and words
Ten thousand craters where it all should be
Whoa

No need to put your words into my mouth
Don't need convincing at all
I love the place enough to have no doubts
Whoa

It's a mess, it's a start
It's a flawed work of art
You're a city, you're a call
Every crack, every wall
Pick a side, pick a fight
Get your head, it's not right
We can sing, 'til you drop
'Cause the fun just never stops

I love this city tonight
I love this city always
It bares it's teeth like a light
And spits me out after days
But we're all currents for it
We know what's wrong and it's right
For every time it's been hit
Take back the city tonight

Tell me you never wanted more than this
And I will stop talking now
One perfect partner, one eternal kiss
Whoa

Take back the city for yourself tonight
Or I'll take back the city for me
Take back the city for yourself tonight
Whoa

It's a mess, it's a start
It's a flawed work of art
You're a city, you're a call
Every crack, every wall
Pick a side, pick a fight
Get your head, it's not right
You can sing, 'til you drop
'Cause the fun just never stops

I love this city tonight
I love this city always
It bares it's teeth like a light
And spits me out after days
But we're all currents for it
We know what's wrong and it's right
For every time it's been hit
Take back the city tonight

I love this city tonight
I love this city always
It bares it's teeth like a light
And spits me out after days
But we're all currents for it
We know what's wrong and it's right
For every sign that's been hit
Take back the city tonight

I love this city tonight
I love this city always

I can't find the lyrics to this next song, but that's okay because linky! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Li6SNuT4e4

The best thing to watch is the music video, it's pretty self explanatory. If that isn't mad science, I don't know what is. You could almost see it happening in MSW.

Anyway!

Nobody's put Trans Poly U up? Really?
http://www.tomsmithonline.com/freestuff/oddio/TPUFS.mp3

Cheer, cheer for Trans Poly U,
Rise, our creations, here's what to do,
Show their folly, watch them fry, as
We call the lightning from the sky.

What tho' the odds be great or be small,
Trans Poly U will rule over all,
This entire world will fall, and
Worship Trans Poly U.

2, 4, 6, 8,
You can't beat what we create!
It's all right, it's all good,
Those blind fools never understood.
That's okay, they won't score,
That's what this new Death Ray's for.
Punch 'em inna head, kick 'em inna ditch,
Forget the Hail Mary -- throw the switch!
Yayyy!

Cheer, cheer for Trans Poly U,
This is a day that their team will rue,
They run plays, but we've got plans, we'll
Make them give in to our demands!

All of them laughed, but soon they will see,
Ruling the world is our destiny,
Starting with this game will do, so
Fight on, Trans Poly U!
