Pop Science: Serious Answers to Deep Questions Posed in Songs
by James Ball Author
Praise math, the answers we've been wondering about for decades of listening to popular music are at last compiled here, with careful, thoughtful mathematical and scientific supporting evidence. "Should I stay or should I go?" asked The Clash, and the answer is a resounding yes—assuming, at least, that the band wishes to reduce the incidence of "trouble" by approximately half. Other questions answered include: Is there life on Mars? Where have all the flowers gone? Can I kick it? Who let the dogs out? Isn't it ironic? This book's straightfaced, fact-based approach to each question is truly delightful.
