Zooniverse Advent – Day 7: Kelp! Seaweed Somebody!

7

 

Following on from yesterday’s post about alternative project titles, specifically the one for Floating Forests, I thought I would share the brilliant effort of the research team to alter the lyrics of Help! by the Beatles to fit their project. Here they are:

Kelp, I need somebody
Kelp, not just anybody
Kelp, you know I need folk to find, keeeeelp!

When I was younger (So much younger than) so much younger than today
(I never needed) I never needed satellites to see kelp in any way
(Now) But now those days are gone (These days are gone), divers only see so much
(I know I’ve found) Now I find I’ve changed my mind and downloaded more and more and more

Kelp me if you can, we’re peering down
And I do appreciate you looking ’round
Kelp us find algae while you sit upon the ground
Won’t you please, please kelp me

(Now) And now science has changed in oh so many ways
(The ivory tower) The ivory tower seems to vanish in the haze
(And) And every now (Every now and then) and then I feel so self-assured
(I know that I) I know that I can share my science like I’ve never done before

Kelp me if you can, we’re peering down
And I do appreciate you looking ’round
Kelp us find algae while you sit upon the ground
Won’t you please, please kelp me

When I was younger (So much younger than) so much younger than today
(I never needed) I never needed satellites to see kelp in any way
(Now) But now those days are gone (These days are gone), divers only see so much
(I know I’ve found) Now I find I’ve changed my mind and downloaded more and more and more

Kelp me if you can, we’re peering down
And I do appreciate you looking ’round
Kelp us find algae while you sit upon the ground
Won’t you please, please kelp me, kelp me, kelp me, ooh!
PS: If you fancy actually having a go at recording the song, please send it to me!!!
