Peer Reviewed Play List

It’s probably no news to most of use that puns, quotes and lyrics crop  up on a fairly regular bases in titles of research papers. But scientists making humorous and cultural references in their published work does appear to be news in some quarters. A group of Swedish scientist have caught the medias with their 17 year long quest to plant Bob Dylan’s lyrics into their papers. For example who can forget the classic Nature Medicine hit Nitric Oxide and inflammation: The answer is blowing in the wind and or the epic ballad of neuroscience told in  Blood on the Tracks: A Simple Twist of Fate? .

But to really appreciate the research surely you have to listen to the inspiring lyrics whilst reading the papers. So clearly we need a ‘Peer Reviewed Play List‘ to link the science and the music.

So starting with the Dylan tracks and the papers that his lyrics featured in, here’s the play-list and a link to the same on Spotify. Feel free to add any lyrical papers you come across in the comments and I’ll put them on the play-list. Or tweet them using #PeerReviewLyrics.
