Science Rocks: She's an Engineer

by Leslie Taylor

Video by Pharmasseuse

This catchy song by the band Pharmasseuse sounds like a cross between They Might Be Giants and The Postal Service. Most importantly, it celebrates a woman engineer!

Careful, after listening, you too will be singing "Ghost in the computer, Ghost in the computer!" for the rest of the day.

Hat tip to Shiv for the apt description of the musical genre.
