Talk:Why Does The Sun Really Shine?

From This Might Be A Wiki

Ram Pressure[edit]

Meteors produce heat and light from Ram Pressure, not from friction.


The sun is not a red dwarf. Kolrad 06:55, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Furthermore, if it were, it would have no chance of supernova-ing. So much for fact-checking. ~ magbatz
Maybe it's "The sun is no red dwarf." I Find It Hard To Believe that they could get something like this wrong. Just look at the thing, it isn't red! --badqueso 08:16, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Yep, here is Flans in a studio singing "no" link. I think he also might be singing "supernova-ed." --badqueso 22:32, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Exactly. Rule of thumb - Always read the lyrics before commenting on them. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 14:49, March 15 2010 (CST)

Big unwieldy title[edit]

Is there any reason why all of the various Why Does The Sun Shine? pages don't need the subtitle, but this song does? ~ blitzente (talk) 10:52, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes. This song's long title is a pretty clever line. Otherwise, nope. ~ magbatz 18:38, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

There's a Psychedelic blues band from the 60s. Thought I should put that somewhere. ~ magbatz

Please credit the original artists[edit]

There's a lot of great info about the science and the song on the page but I can't see where the original artists are credited. Just a vague mention of an album "recorded in the 50's".

The original artists are credited on the page for the original song Why Does The Sun Shine?. This page is for the answer song Why Does The Sun Really Shine? which is an original TMBG song. --BlueCanary 02:35, 7 January 2010 (UTC)


Does anyone else think the riff at the end is a direct nod to the riff at the end of "A Hard Day's Night" by The Beatles? Also, the mood and tune of the song remind me of the Aquatic Ruins music from Sonic 2. Some people thought "I'm Impressed" sounded like Marble Madness music, but both cases are probably coincidences. Linnell recently commented that he's not big into video games these days. - thevince 22 August 2011
