You might want to sing it note for note

So here's the thing.

I came across this video this morning and, it's pretty cool. Bobby McFerrin, who to be honest I've only ever heard of in connection with the "Don't Worry, Be Happy" song that he released back when I was 10, enlists the audience at the World Science Festival in a pretty enjoyable demonstration of our instictive understanding of the pentatonic musical scale. It's fun to watch.
