You’ve shared an impressive and enchanting array of musical tributes with us over the years, and they deserve to be shared with others more broadly. From teachers to students to professional musicians and composers, you’ve written and shared some beautiful tunes!
Of the many, many music videos out there, here are some of the very best:
LullaPi – by Devin Powell (2023)
A pensive, soulful piano ballad that will bring your pulse down to about 3.14 beats a minute. Devin spins a warm melody out of the first 18 digits, circling back at will and giving the number’s natural intervals plenty of time to resonate. True Pi Day mood music!
Viva La Pi Day – by Jon Jacques (2023)
With the help of some his students at Biddeford High School in Maine, Jon Jacques weaves a cappella harmonies with a wry, lyrical tale from a day in the life of a math class in this clever send-up of a Coldplay classic.
Song From Pi – by David Macdonald (2015)
A haunting and lovely piano solo, with the melody of the first 120 digits derived uniquely from the A harmonic minor scale. Serious pianists can even buy David’s original sheet music!
Pi, Pi, Pi, Pi Day – by Williamsburg Charter High School (2016)
An incredibly polished and catchy remake of “Work,” directed by Mr. Reuben Dilworth and performed outside this Brooklyn, NY school.
What is the Value of Pi? – by Matthew Beyranevand (2014)
A fun, fast-paced parody of “What does the Fox Say?” with a classroom full of kids as the ensemble cast!
Singing Pi Gram – by Vi Hart (2013)
Vi Hart might be best known for her (gulp) anti-Pi rants in other videos, but her musical talent can’t be denied in this smart vocal take on the digits’ natural melody.
What Pi Sounds Like – by Michael Blake (2011)
The gold standard of melodic Pi music, and among the most-watched Pi hits on YouTube, here is Michael Blake’s beautiful and fascinating tune.
