Metabolise! (Biochemistry Song)

Metabolise!

Music: Breaking Free (Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens)

Rendition of: Edgar Vincent Peñano Bautista

Troy:
We’re thirsty, hungry
Our cells are dying
And there’s no energy

Gabriella:
If we’re lucky
We can make it tomorrow

Troy:
I know what we really need

Food rich with carbohydrates


Gabriella:
And with all those sugar
We’ll have ATP


Both:
But there are still bonds to break

Glycosidic Bonds


Chorus #1
Troy:
Metabolise!
Gabriella:
Sucrose
Troy:
No! Glucose
Both:
Glucose is known as an aldohexose
Troy:
If we need it
Both:
Use glycolysis.
Troy:
To release energy.
Gabriella:
Ohhhh
Troy:
Wait we’re forgetting something
We need other macromolecules

Gabriella:
Oh yes I forgot about
Proteins and Enzymes

Both:
Eating different kinds of food

So we can be healthy

Chorus #2
Troy: Metabolise!
Gabriella: We’re eating’
Troy: Yeah eating!
Both:
Eat lots of protein for our cell’s functions.
Troy:
And for enzymes
and antibodies

Gabriella:
Proteins

Troy:
Yeah proteins
The body’s proteins
Both:
Consists of amino acids
Troy:
There are twenty
Both:
Linked with peptide bonds

Troy:
Let’s name some
Gabriella:
Essential Amino Acids

Troy:
Histamine
Arginine
Gabriella:
Tryptophan
Threonine
Isoleucine

Both:
Methionine

Troy:
Leucine

Lysine
Gabriella:
Valine, what else?

Both:
Phenylalanine!


Chorus #3
Gabriella: DNA
Troy: RNA
Both:
They’re made of phosphate and nitrogenous bases

Pentose Sugar

Troy: Deoxyribose for DNA
Gabriella:
Ribose for RNA
Water In
Troy:
Water Out
Both:
You can change them
By synthesis and hydrolysis
Biochem is fun!
Troy: But it’s already time…
Gabriella: we’re breaking free
Troy: we’re breaking free

Both:
You must know your Biochem
To truly understand… us…

Knowing Organic Chemistry (Chemistry Song)

Knowing Organic Chemistry

Music: Start of Something New (Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens)

Rendition of: Edgar Vincent Peñano Bautista


Living in my own world
Didn't understand
What things are really made of
And how they’re formed
Encountering Organic Chem

Oh I then could see
The beauty of C & H

And all the possibilities
I know that it’s in the bonds
Always covalent bonds
And right here I know

This could be the start
Of something new
Like formaline
To preserve all things
And then adding in more C’s

Then saturate

The start of something new

Now who'd of ever thought that
Benzene is really Bad!
With its six Carbon Chain (Carbon, Carbon)
Electrons delocalized

I know it’s a carcinogen

Maybe a mutagen

I know it for real


This could be the start
Of something new
Like Aspirin
To relieve our pain

And then adding functional groups
I feel in my heart
The start of something new

I never knew that it could happen
With just hydrolysis and hydration
I didn't know it before
But now it's easy to see

It's a start
Of something new
Tires and shampoo
Made from polymers
And now cleaving of some C’s
Or repositioning

That it's the start
Of something new
It feels so right
To know all these things
And now looking through Organic Chem

I feel in my heart
The start of something new
Start of something new

Sex Sells

It really is funny how people are so attracted to the topic about sex... but what is in sex that is so likable? Before you get me wrong this topic is PG-rated as well as this blog but let us tackle this very strange controversy.

I have noticed that in every form of advertisement there is always a tinge of sex, if not, all out sexual message is seen. Pervertive acts, words, and even thoughts are already made normal in this era and it is quite alarming.

What ever happened to true love? What happened to purity? I blame the media for this. The media is what sets trends, the what's good and whats bad; the what's hot and what's not. But I also think that the people who follow these trends are stupid. Why do they have to be such stereotypes?!

I can excuse the stupid teens for being so stupid and horny but even some adults are not to be excused from this excessive lust. Whatever happened to the saying that the adults are suppose to set an example?

I think that money and sex are the roots of all evil. These are the structural sins of society... I just hope that we put an end to this soon and reclaim our souls...

I don't want to sound like a righteous Christian but really... I don't think that I am all good... I am also a sinner... I just realized my mistakes.
