Our first top ten music chart of gas related songs was such a hit (pardon the pun) we received some additional song requests.
So like a good DJ we welcomed these requests and combined them with my own music knowledge and a bit of Googling to come up with a brand new Analox music chart for 2016.
10 – The Air That I Breathe by The Hollies
One of our distributors, Pauley Equipment, suggested this song, which hones in on what really matters in life. The Hollies are right, to survive all you really need is the air that you breathe. And copious amounts of food and water, particularly parmo’s.
9 – Fast Food Song by Fast Food Rockers
This song is super cheesy, but it highlights many chains in the fast food industry that use carbon dioxide (CO2) to put the fizz in our soft drinks. By using the Ax60 these chain restaurants can monitor the level of this gas and be alerted if it goes beyond pre-defined limits.
8 – Pressure by Paramore
Despite the line-up changes this American rock band are still going strong. If you ever find me out in Middlesbrough on a Saturday night, you’ll probably witness me singing and dancing to one of their songs.
7 – Take My Breath Away by Berlin
If exposed to high levels of gases, such as carbon monoxide (CO) or nitrogen dioxide (NO2), your breath will certainly be taken away, so it’s a good job we have monitors to alert you when you might be in danger of inhaling too much.
6 – Oxygen by Ronan Keating
I didn’t really appreciate Boyzone the first time around, as I was more of a Spice Girls fan (Baby was my favourite). But over time I grew to like their music along with the solo material of Ronan Keating.
5 – No Air by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown
Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown have it sussed out. Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?
4 – I Dreamed A Dream by Susan Boyle
BOC Sureserve revealed their geeky side when they suggested this Britain’s Got Talent performer. However the clue is in the name of the artist, not the song. Boyle’s law is a gas law stating that the pressure and volume of a gas have an inverse relationship when the temperature is held constant. So if the volume of a gas increases, then the pressure decreases and vice versa.
3 – Under The Sea by Samuel E. Wright (The Little Mermaid)
Disney’s musical numbers are always quite catchy, but forget the frosty delight ‘Let it Go’, we’re interested in what’s ‘Under the sea’, and diving with the correct gas mix to explore the ocean floor.
2 – In The Air tonight by Phil Collins
This song is forever tarnished to make me think about chocolate and gorillas, but what’s really in the air is mainly nitrogen, oxygen, argon and carbon dioxide.
1 – Life’s A Gas by T.Rex
Life essentially is made up of all different gases, and with our gas detectors you will be able to see just how much of a particular gas is in the atmosphere.
