!!Tropes used in this series

* AutoTune - A shining example at that.'
* EldritchAbomination: "Monsters of the Cosmos" portrays black holes as this.
* FlameWar / {{GIFT}} - The videos, being uploaded on Website/YouTube, tend to draw the worst kinds of TheFundamentalist {{Troll}} who try to turn the videos' comment sections into 'religion vs. atheism' flame wars. They tend to be the VocalMinority, however.
* HumansAreSpecial - Particularly in "Children of Africa":
--> "These beings, with ''soaring'' imagination
--> Eventually flung themselves and their machines
--> into interplanetary space..."
** And of course, CarlSagan's "We are a way for the cosmos to know itself".
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters - ''The Poetry of Reality'', which has more singers than the previous four songs combined. The recent songs tend to have more and more different singers compared to the early ones.
* MeasuringTheMarigolds - Hugely inverted.
--> "The beauty of a living thing
--> is not the atoms that go into it
--> but the way those atoms are put together.."
** From the same song, Feynman's "But you've gotta stop and think about it, about the the complexity, to really get the pleasure."
* ScienceHero - Every scientist featured.
* ScheduleSlip - The first five songs were released at a rate of about one a month, but this has slowed down considerably with five months between songs six and seven. This is due to the fact that John is now making a point of gaining permission from copyright holders before uploading. It's quickened with the eighth song again.
* [[TheWorldIsJustAwesome The Universe Is Just Awesome]] - Damn right!
* VoiceClipSong
