“Please hold. Oh and here’s some science while you wait.”

"Please hold. Oh, and here's some science while you wait."

Vote for our local science centre’s hold music!

When you ring your bank or internet provider or washing machine helpline you know you’re going to get stuck listening to some crappy hold music that’s going to make you want to chew your own arm off before anybody anwers.

But NOT when you ring Bristol’s local science centre! Not anymore. If you ring At-Bristol, you’re going to get something geeky, poppy and utterly delectable. And WE ALL get to decide what that is. Yes, the folks from At-Bristol have sought help from the foremost connoisseurs of science music *cough* (us) and we’re turning this into a democratic vote.

So. The brief was:

“a cute quirky song about science that is pretty accessible to non-scientists”

We’ve whittled it down to five for them. They’re all songs that have at some point featured on the Geek Pop podcast – so they’ve already undergone rigorous review, as listeners will know… Now here’s where you come in. Have a little look at the list of songs below, have a listen to the clips, or listen here to the full songs (Spotify). And then VOTE for the song you think At-Bristol should use as its hold music. Bear in mind the brief but also, consider what you would like to hear if you rang your local science centre. We’ll be taking your votes until next Wednesday at noon. THIS IS IMPORTANT DUDES! GO!

Oh and for tweeters the hashtag is #scienceholdmusic.

CLIPS!

SPOTIFY LIST!
