Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Absolute Time’s an Atrocity Edition

Sometimes I’m ashamed of how long it takes me to discovery all the amazing content the Internet has to offer. I feel that way double today.

If you don’t know of the band Postmodern Jukebox, you should. They do a lot of covers, but they have a whole album of Motown interpretations of Nickelback. They actually made Nickelback listenable! I spent an entire evening just combing through their YouTube channel. Just when I thought I couldn’t be charmed any more, I ran across the gem of a song that is today’s featured tune.

This is a stand-out song. Not just because it’s particularly well done (all the videos are pretty well done.) It’s just the odd man out in the band’s repertoire. But, evidently, a very important question demanded an answer:

What if Albert Einstein had written Kesha-with-a-dollar-sign’s hit single, Tik Tok, about time dilation in Special Relativity?

Well? WHAT IF? I didn’t even know how empty my life was before that question was posed to me, and now I’ll stop at nothing to find the answer. Luckily, I didn’t have to look that far, because they answered it. That answer is “Tick Tok (on the Relativistic Clock).”

I hope you enjoy Einstein’s sweet moves as much as I did.
