Study Anthem O' the Day

It's very important to listen to the correct music when studying. Of course, the "right" music changes according to person, topic studied, time of day, mood, energy level, etc. But forget all that. I'll give a few recommendations now and again, and they will pretty much be based on whatever comest to mind at the time.

Without further ado, here is the perfect inaugural Study Anthem. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is the only indie rock music video you will ever find that celebrates academic research:

Andrew Bird - "Imitosis".
From the 2007 release "Armchair Apocrypha"
In case video doesn't work, here's the link:

THESIS PROGRESS: I'm still awake, which isn't saying much

The video doesn't work :( You got me all psyched and everything.

Hmmm. That's weird. It works on my computer, so I don't know how to fix the problem. Does anybody else know?

If all else fails, here is the url to the video so that you can watch it directly from YouTube:

Or you can just google "Andrew Bird," everything he does is amazing, so you can't go wrong.

Actually I think now that it was an issue on youtube's end. I can see it now. Cool song... the jewel bugs are hypnotic. And I WANT a phonograph like that.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it! When he performs live, he brings a whole bunch of rainbow colored phonographs with him.
