“Twenty Seconds” by Jake Ryan Flynn
With its rigid beat and dry, monotone vocals, the song sounds like a synth-pop hit you would have heard in a dance club in the Eighties. Or at least on an Eighties Spotify station. Close your eyes and you can imagine a music video: awkwardly lip-synching musicians, exploding lightbulbs, foggy streets. And for about a dozen years, a dedicated gaggle of music obsessives from around the world has been searching for any information about these three minutes of music. The hunt embodies every conversation anyone has ever had with a devoted music nerd happy to share every morsel of information about an obscure song — in this case, one supposedly taped off European radio about 35 years ago.

Thanks to coronavirus, the time has come for a new song to help us properly wash our hands. By Marc Shaiman. Last week, it occurred to Susan Dominus, a reporter at The New York Times, that there should be an alternative, to spare the Happy Birthday song from so many unpleasant associations. This is when she called my co-lyricist, Scott Wittman, and me with a proposal: Maybe we could come up with an alternative? The new song would have to be fun — and, of course, last 20 seconds. Being self-isolated makes one happy to have a project — plus, it would feel good to write something that might put a happy spin on this situation we are in, even if for just a few moments. We sent the song to some Broadway friends to help perform our new hand washing anthem.
Check out our papers in Science and Current Biology! What are the universal features of music? We collect ethnographic text and audio recordings from all over the world. We use them to determine the behavioral, social, acoustical, and musical features that characterize the world's songs. This provides a public resource to advance the scientific and humanistic study of music. Music is a signature of the human experience. A ubiquitous, ancient, and uniquely human activity, music, and especially song, appears in most human cultures with staggering diversity. A key roadblock has been the lack of systematic, cross-cultural information about music. The Natural History of Song addresses this gap. NHS Ethnography contains nearly 5, descriptions of songs and song performances from 60 human societies.
