Stat concepts to the tune of Gershwin

Oct 29, 2010

Stat people will probably find this amusing. For the rest, this might make your head explode. Gurdeep Stephens and Michael Greenacre perform classic songs but use statistical concepts for lyrics. Here’s Summertime, originally by George Gershwin, turned into a song about statistical modeling (video below).

It’s summertime,
Statistical modelling is easy,
Data are fitting,
Explained variance is high.
Your data are rich,
And your model’s good-looking,
So hush, statisticians, don’t you cry…

Yeah. That just happened.
