"Physics" is a song by YouTuber and musical artist beetlebat, released on December 22, 2019. It is a school parody of Maroon 5's "Memories." The music video for the song was released on January 12, 2020. The audio and music video have reached over 1400+ views and 80 likes in total.

It peaked at No. 15 on the Flex Entertainment Hot 100, his first ever Top 20 single.

Background Edit

In order to earn extra credit for his Physics class, he decided to make a song that a student could learn from. He took the lyrics of "Memories" by Maroon 5 and rewrote them into a school parody. He shared the song with his teacher in October 2019. This teacher loved the song and played it for the entire class. His classmates told him to put the song on his YouTube channel and film a music video. Beetle released the remastered song on December 22, 2019. He stated in his description that if the audio receives twenty likes, he will film a music video. The like goal was reached within two weeks.

Composition Edit

Just like "Memories", it is based on the harmonic sequence of "Pachelbel's Canon" by Johann Pachelbel. It is arranged around light keys and guitars. The instrumental was created by Queen Karaoke.

Critical Reception Edit

"Physics" received positive reviews from his fans and critics. Thanos78 called it "real average" while General_I80 called it "Good." AOTY critic Jebus gave it a 80/100 stating, "The singing is mid but this is a really charming and fun song. I can see high school teachers playing this in their classes."

Chart Performance Edit

"Physics" debuted at No. 15 on the Flex Entertainment Hot 100. It fell to No. 25 the following week. It had a lot of longevity on the charts, lasting 24 weeks on the Hot 100.

Music video Edit

The music video for "Physics" features beetlebat in his Physics classroom performing the song.

Lyrics Edit

[Chorus]
Here's to the problems we got
Here’s to the wish that it’s easy, but it’s not
'Cause Physics is just different
From everything we’ve been through
Thanks to the formulas today
Putting in the answers and you find the way
'Cause Physics is just different
And the last digit of a measurement is uncertain too

[Verse 1]
There’s the scientific method, where you start with a question
Then you make an educated guess, then experiment and test
You record your observations and decide if it’s correct
Share the results in presentation, and hope for an A

[Pre-Chorus]
Displacement over time
The velocity formula, oh oh
Don’t know ‘bout Newton’s law
Maybe I should ask Mr. Mowry

[Chorus]
Here's to the problems we got
Here’s to the wish that it’s easy, but it’s not
'Cause Physics is just different
From everything we’ve been through
Thanks to the formulas today
Putting in the answers and you find the way
'Cause Physics is just different
And the last digit of a measurement is uncertain too
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
The last digit of a measurement is uncertain too

[Verse 2]
Have you heard of acceleration? It’s meters per second squared
The change of velocity over the time of change (oh yeah)
Now I follow these vectors, and I’ll know the magnitude
And gravity’s acceleration is 9.8 meters (per second)

[Pre-Chorus]
Displacement over time
The velocity formula, oh oh
Don’t know ‘bout Newton’s law
Maybe I should ask Mr. Mowry

[Chorus]
Here's to the problems we got
Here’s to the wish that it’s easy, but it’s not
'Cause Physics is just different
From everything we’ve been through
Thanks to the formulas today
Putting in the answers and you find the way
'Cause Physics is just different
And the last digit of a measurement is uncertain too
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
The last digit of a measurement is uncertain too
Doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo (ooh, yeah)
The last digit of a measurement is uncertain too
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
The last digit of a measurement is uncertain too
