I was instantly reminded of a list of Top Ten Geek Anthems when I was listening to WYEP this morning on the way into work. They were featuring Andrew Bird’s Master Fade. I had to find Master Fade this morning and I was very impressed with this song in many more ways.

I first found the lyrics for the song which proved a bit more that it was what I would call a geek song. A song that features zeros and ones in the sky – that’s geek to me! So I found the lyrics and confirmed that it was pretty much a great song that features a lot of geek elements.

Then I wanted to see if there was a video on YouTube and that was when I became impressed. I did not know until I got to one of the YouTube videos (this one) that Andrew Bird was actually playing all of the instruments by setting the looping right there on the stage. Now I have to say, as someone who has dabbled in video and audio – that’s pretty freaking amazing! I can’t imagine how long it took him to practice doing that or how long it took him to just figure out a song where he could do that. Wow!

But it also goes back to how music and being a “geek” seem to be tied together. I think we are going to see more and more of this as shows like Glee continue to become more popular (and yes, Glee is one of my favorite shows). But it also makes me look at that “Top Ten” list and wonder why not one of them was sung by a female artist.

Now starts the search – the search for the Top Ten Geeka Songs – songs that celebrate us girls who embrace the geek status! If you know of any, please pass them along.
