Courtesy of Wired News comes this great site: Greg’s Science Song Music. Greg is University of Washington lecturer Greg Crowther, and he livens up his biology classes (and clearly channels his inner rock ‘n roller) by setting his lessons to pop songs.

You can listen to the MP3 versions here. This version of My Sharona is beyond cool. I sure wish this guy had been around when I was taking Biology! You can download PDF versions of the songs as well so you can sing along. If you want to hear more, check out his database of science songs.
