Loudon Wainwright's 1994 is about genetic engineering.

Chris Wood's Turtle Soup is about Darwin. And he wrote a song about geology, looking back from the far future:
When cars and trucks and ships and planes will stain the seams of rock rust red.
Peggy Seeger has a couple if songs about elements:
If you want the bomb, one of your very own-ium
Not the ordinary kind but one made from plutinium...
...and one about an isotope: Polinium 210.

I heard a song by Charlie Dore last week comparing somebody to a neutrino; I think it's on her new CD. Is this a first - a song about a sub-atomic particle?

The problem with broadcasting that song, though, especially in the US, is the fear of being on the receiving end of a fire bomb or similar. Which illustrates the problem nicely: just how far can one 'stand up for science' safely?

Here's a bit from one of my songs.       Montana , hell creek bore / mystery of dinosaur /in its bone soft blood spots lay / which they thought had passed away / Darwinists were briefly stumped , creation had come up trumps / what they saw was clearly plain / time for them to think again !

Pete... all that a couple of discoveries of soft tissue or red blood cells means is that it is uncommon to find such things, and that science must re-evaluate a formerly accepted idea. (That's what science does... when surprises happen, they integrates the new data, not discard all previous analysis in favor of a totally different concept.)
