Pop Goes the Science Song
By Randy Dotinga

The Archies certainly never thought they'd inspire a song about energy
production in muscle cells.

But, when he feels like livening up his biology classes, University of
Washington lecturer Greg Crowther bursts into song to the melody of
"Sugar Sugar," the bubble-gum '60s tune. "Glucose, ah sugar sugar," he
sings. "You are my favorite fuel from the bloodborne substrate pool /
Glucose -- monosaccharide sugar -- you're sweeter than a woman's kiss /
'cause I need you for glycolysis."
