Evolution Songs

Some theories of origins have inspired generations of musicians. Darwin's theory of evolution has not. This may be because humans have a hard time emoting about an impersonal process that unfolds over millions of years. Or it could be because there is no enormous institution extracting tithes from the entire population and commissioning artistic works that perpetuate its worldview. In any case, I do know of two pretty neat songs that are about evolution, and thought I'd share them with you. You can listen to lo-fi previews of the songs, which hopefully won't get me in trouble.
Gentle Arms of Eden
Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer
Drum Hat Buddha
I Come From Water
The Toadies
Rubberneck

Bad Religion singer Greg Graffin is a Ph.D. in biology, but I can only think of one song referencing evolution:
Modern Man.
