I've heard some of the songs. Like most of you, I also enjoyed them. What a creative way to explain science! In my opinion, it's much more fun to learn about science through these catchy songs than through the conventional way. I know it is impossible to just learn a whole school subject with a song, but these kind of measures could be used as supporting tool or something. Maybe if these songs have been created when I was studying, I might had understand Physics and Natural Science better than I did back then, or even got more interest in them.

I haven't heard all of the songs, but from those I've heard, the Secret of the Stars is my favorite too. Maybe all download it to my MP3. :p

Symphony of Science is great! Not just due to the songs and their quotes themselves, but because it does a surprising amount to get people interested in its ideas even if they weren't into science before. I've always been into Natural Science, among other branches, but I appreciate anything that gets people (myself or otherwise) to explore a subject they might not have been previously interested in. Typically I don't care much for autotune, but the way it's used here worked extremely well! Also, I find all of the songs just really, really soothing, especially when paired with the visuals.

In regards to using music for education, I'm always up for new methods of augmenting traditional learning, especially as times change and upcoming generations might not absorb information for traditional sources as willingly as they might listen to SoS-style music or play subject-related games. I don't think they'd take the place of more conventional teaching-methods, but I do think they could be valuable additions if used properly!

Guess I'll need to check out this Symphony of Science thing. Schoolhouse Rock will always be one of my favorite ways to learn about every topic, ever.

When i think about educational music the only thing that comes to mind is Schoolhouse Rock. Absolutely love it, still have the cds and the remakes are the best with Pavement, & Blind Melon.
