Carl Sagan: scientist, author, singer

I don't know where this "Autotuning" came from, but I like it. Sometimes it seems forced, but other times it's so spot on that it actually creates a good song and not just a goofy, funny curio.

The latest is from the PBS TV show Cosmos, something I really enjoyed years ago, and features Carl Sagan (with a cameo by another famous scientist and author). This is really well done, sort of techno meets progressive rock. I love how it's not just stringing his words together, but there's actually a chorus.

Here's one for Billy Mays.

Ah hahaha, someone showed this to me a few days ago and I absolutely loved it. Nice to see it posted here as well.

The best use of autotuning possible. It's amazing how much Sagan's narration already sounded like song lyrics, and this just completes the job.
