Whatever gets you to the top of the hill

Waldo from "Hot for Teacher" video

Far be it from me to imply that David Lee Roth is a nerd rocker of any sort. However, this chorus from Big Train is the only rock lyric I know of to refer to the train-and-platform thought experiment used to demonstrate the special theory of relativity. You won’t get that from Rush. You’d likely be hard-pressed to find it in the annals of college rock.

Time gets movin’
When you don’t know what you’re doin’
And you’re wondering if you ever will

Honey are you with me?
Or is the train doing sixty?
Maybe you’re standing still.

No one's really sure what became of Waldo after graduation.
