Does your cubicle mate play “adult contemporary” while you writhe in agony? Well now you can strike back with the classic rock stylings of your favorite insects! Lang Elliot and Will Hershberger have recently completed a practical guide to 76 species of singing insects, including crickets, katydids and cicadas of eastern and central North America. The Songs of Insects includes an audio CD so you can finally put a name to that damn bug song that has been stuck in your head all day.
As part of what I consider a rather clever marketing ploy, Lang and Will offer an embeddable jukebox that is permanently tuned to insect songs. Listen to ours or get your own. Good times, great oldies!
