    I am loving this. I converted it to MP3 and have already added it to my music collection.

    It’s not quite as incredible as musical Tesla coils (AKA: Zeusaphone or Thoramin), though, where the square-wave music is generated by the air being torn apart by mini-lightning…

    song written by Ed Cobb who was in the Four Preps in the 50s, before going on to writer a number of great songs for soul and garage acts in the 60s:

    It’s got a beat and you might be able to dance to it.

    Pretty amazing. A lot of work went into that. And it proves that no matter how obsolete something may be, it can always be “re-purposed.”
