The Molecular Shape of You (Ed Sheeran Parody) | A Capella Science


A dot isn’t the best way to try to sum up how electrons come and go They are the states of a matter field that follows and equation that Dirac wrote The Schrödinger part of the whole equation will just lead
In sub-c when it expands Now get that Coulomb and add it in with a proton
And watch them start to dance
As hydrogen it’s like “Oh proton I feel your tug Central potential dip down pulling on me But I’m not falling in deep No that would break uncertainty” “Say oh
Electrons move too much Slow down your pace and put that orbit on me Come on now follow my lead Come come on now follow my lead Orbitals take the shape they do As stable states of the quantum rules And when a one approaches two They combine and they’re bonding Thus hydrogen as a rule Is found in nature as H2 Energy configuring a molecule Diatomically bonding Low high low high low high low high Diatomically bonding Low high low high low high low high Diatomically bonding Low high low high low high low high Diatomically bonding Energy cofiguring a molecule When orbitals take the shape they do 1/2 spin’ll give a lepton a twin One up one down in the ground state With S and P in quadruple degeneracy The second shell can be filled up with eight The higher angular powers spread out like beautiful flowers In middle families they come into play Well here’s a carbon with 6e This ain’t nothing tricksy
But we’re gonna make some methane today With hydrogen it’s like “Oh atoms I feel your tug Got my electrons bugged out pulling on me Come on now settle round me I’ll hybridize to sp3” “Say oh
Carbon here’s touch Spread out 109.47 degrees Come on now follow our lead Come come on now follow our lead” Molecules take the shape they do Combining states of the quantum rules Like when a shell goes sp2 For sigma pi double bonding And as widely as their purview They spread out in the molecule Look at benzene in a ring they hold it true Aromatically bonding Low high low high low high low high Aromatically bonding Low high low high low high low high Aromatically bonding Low high low high low high low high Aromatically bonding Look at benzene in a ring they hold it true When orbitals take the shape they do Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby,
come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby,
come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby,
come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond Polymers take the shape they do Combining base-level residues Like RNA’s ACGU Look they’re hydrogen bonding! Peptides make a chain and group In beta pleat sheets and corkscrews With these secondary links they fold and move They’re all over your body Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond
(They’re all over your body) Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond
(They’re all over your body) Come bond with me baby, come bond Come bond with me baby, come bond
(They’re all over your body) You’re a chemical machine It’s best you knew That molecules take the shape of you.

  2. I'm in love with the songs of you. 😀 Great work in the past, gets appreciation even in future. I will keep up with your works.

  3. Wow. This covers my biochemistry syllabus for MLS, and is also a beautiful piece of art. Thanks for making this!

  4. SUCH AN AMAZING VIDEO!! Tbh there was some I didn’t quite get but I feel like I got a deeper understanding of some of the stuff I did know. I’m going to come back next year and be able to fully compete what happened.

  5. Gracious! God bless this man and his creativity! The phenomenal combination of science and music stirred me like no other. It's actually funny as to how I can really understand what he wishes to say. The video is exceptional. The voice also resembles to that Ed Sheeran.
    On an overall note, it is so much fun to be able to actually 'enjoy' science, that too Chemistry!
    Kudos to everyone involved in it. Thank you!

  6. This song triggers my PTSD from chemistry class. I've always liked chemistry and I did most of this when I was eight, but everything past 1:30 gives me the chills…

  7. HAHAHAHAH this is soo funny first time seeing it understood everything Oml u know physics/Chem pretty well.

  8. Hahaha at 3:25 that should be beta pleated sheet and Alpha helix instead of corkscrewe 😂😂😂this is so funny

  9. maaan , am a noobe at chemistry but a legwnd at songs and this is tooooooo good as a 10th class student chemistry bored boy is likeing and uderstanding something abut chem through a song

  10. Hey I’m 10 and ??? WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?? IS THIS A BRAND NEW LANGUAGE??? Like if you are 10- and you have no idea what this is?
