It's A Long Way From Amphioxus

By Grant Jacobs 07/10/2011


I was reading Alison’s latest post, old fossils on a spoil heap, and on reading ’Amphioxus (Branchiostoma) – and us.’ I thought ‘cue It’s A Long Way From Amphioxus’.

Seeing as it’s Friday, you can hear it for yourself:

There’s an annotated version of the lyrics on flounder.com. (Where else would you find it but on a marine biology website.)

It’s sweetly performed, but I personally would love to see a version accompanied with a nice video.

  • Oh, very nice – I wish I’d thought of that! (I agree a video would be even better.)

  • Cheeky of me, huh 🙂

    I have to admit that line you wrote just struck a chord.

    Now I just have to convince a sci. comm. student to tackle making a video for it…
