Wish Things Were Clear

Here’s another information literacy tutorial song parody video I made. This one focuses on the SMELL Test. The lyrics follow below.


Wish Things Were Clear
So – so you think you can tell
Good sources by SMELL
Research from bunk
Can you tell a real deal
From a fake free lunch
A theory from a hunch
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Real experts for kooks
Dogmas for degrees
Hot air for expertise
Wise guidance for strange
Did you exchange
A book with lots of detail
For a too-simple web page?

How I wish, how I wish things were clear
The internet’s a mess
Of opinion and guess
Through which we steer
So many out to deceive
You can’t believe
Everything you hear
I wish things were clear
