Revisit the era when parodies made us better in school

Hey, remember the times when parodies made us perform better in school?

While it’s unlikely that musicians ever thought of using rhythms from their most well-known songs to rework them for educational purposes, students are clever enough to do this themselves!

Well, calling all Millennials out there! Do you recall the times we couldn’t keep up with our classes and would go off to YouTube to watch parodies that could make our lectures a lot easier to digest?

Though younger generations may not be able to relate, worry not—here is a list of well-known parodies from the treasure box that will surely bring back memories and trigger earworms.

Learn to Solve an Integral (What Makes You Beautiful Parody) AP Calculus BC

Since the words of this spoof were changed to instructions on how to solve an integral, those who aren’t Directioners are bound to find themselves singing along.

Calculus Rhapsody

Another Calculus one! I mean, come on, how many of us have trouble understanding Mathematics and could use some musical rhythms to make things easier?

Obviously, Math isn’t everything! Science is challenging for us too, but music helps us learn!

Evo-Devo (Despacito Biology Parody) | A Capella Science

I promise that this song will make you fall in love with your least favorite sub. Some people find biology difficult, but this video makes it easier to understand. Who would have thought that we can learn human and other organisms’ growth this easily?

The DNA Song (Parody of Fetty Wap – Trap Queen)

I swear, Fetty Wap never would have thought to include educational content in his songs. Well, others did. This parody will surely help you understand DNA better.

Starfish: an Oceanography Tale

As it educated people about the ocean, this parody of Nicki Minaj’s “Starship,” one of the all-time favorites, attracted thousands of viewers.

LAB RULES – Dua Lipa “New Rules” Parody | SCIENCE SONGS

Who could forget about the iconic parody of Dua Lipa’s single ‘New Rules’? (not me, for sure!). If you haven’t seen it yet, this is your sign to enjoy the beat of this song. Learning about laboratory rules while listening is a bonus, too!

Oh, those times! Students would rewrite the words of their favorite pop songs to convey information, creating memorable moments with cool rhythms and catchy hooks.

Can parody covers still hold the same power inside educational settings post-pandemic? Well, we still hope so.
