Song of the LHC

Science writer John Tierney held a Darwin Birthday Song Contest and just announced the winners, one a non-Darwin tribute to Einstein called “I’m a Genius” by a Broadway song writer and Einstein look-a-like  Ray Jessel, and the Darwin-based “Mr. Darwin, Mr. Wallace, Mr. Matthew” by British songwriter David Haines.   (I was very intrigued to hear that the contest was judged by Richard Milner, singing scientist, thinking I had discovered a completely unexpected alternative career of my colleague at MIT, but it isn’t that Richard Milner, it’s another one…)  Thinking about how katAlp’s rap raced around the world last year, I propose the same-write a song about the LHC or particle physics in general, put it in a comment here, (or better yet, record it and drop in a link) and we’ll have a doodle poll to pick the winner.  I’m hoping we do better than my last attempt at musical adventure.  I have yet to conceive of a prize, so suggestions along those lines are welcome as well, but remember, we do physics for the love of knowledge, not for the money.
