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
