A Brief History Of Fuzzy Math In Popular Music
Sam Cooke, "Wonderful World"
Like Beyoncé, Sam Cooke must've been asleep in math class. On "Wonderful World," he sings, "Don't know much trigonometry/ Don't know much about algebra/ Don't know what a slide rule is for/ But I do know one and one is two." Luckily, slide rules went bye-bye a long time ago circa the age of the computer. Though I still think they're pretty cool.
