Album Notes
Music is the interstate highway into the memory. These songs help students and adults learn science information and concepts. Dr Chordate has been in the education business for many years and has presented seminars and programs on the use of music and humor in science education everywhere from local libraries and schools to conferences of the National Science Teachers Association and other educational groups. He also provides entertainment at street fairs, professional society meetings, and special events.
For an interesting review of Dr. Chordate's songs in the Portland Mercury, see "It Sure Is a Scientific World", January 2002. A few excerpts are here:

Songs of Science
by John Dooley

There is nothing sweeter than the soothing sounds of a singing scientist? Opportunely for fans of systematic scientific euphony, Dr. Chordate has come to town, and he's laying 'em down! Science songs that will tear up the charts and bitch-slap our hearts!

As you probably know, Dr. Chordate's name is derived from "friendly" Chordates (members of the Phylum Chordata family). What you will come to realize is that when the good Doctor 'spins a thin,' the effluvia really hits the rotating quad-paddled atmospheric cooling device! Supah cuts from his latest CD, Ain't Nothin' But a Groundhog, are cerebellum and booty shakers. Take the companion biology tribute songs, "A Squirrel's Gotta Do What a Squirrel's Gotta Do," and "Furrier Than Thou," which extol the virtues of being mammalian. Songs of parasites, tapeworms, and thermodynamics celebrate experimental melodiousness.

Doubtless, Chordate's previous album (Parts Is Parts) contains irreproducible classics that will remain infinitesimally indelible upon our cultural psyche. "Fifty Ways to Love Your Liver" and "The Sounds of Science" stand up to repeated testing, and still manage to get the proverbial lotion in motion under any conditions. Club cuts "The Solution Resolution" (hiphop jingo detailing the diffusion of solutes in aqueous solutions) and "The Evolution Revolution" (rap aspects of the evolutionary process) bust mega-molecular moves with aggravated impunity.

Keepin' it irrefutable. Yo. Don't run with tweezers.
