Jill Sobule’s musical tribute to Helen Fisher

At TED2006, Helen Fisher delivered an unforgettable talk (now available online) focusing largely on love: Its evolution, its vital importance to human society, and the science behind the stages of lust, infatuation, and long-term attachment. Inspired by Fisher — and, well, slightly disturbed by the biochemical basis of it all — singer/songwriter Jill Sobule penned a pensive tribute, which she began performing in clubs this spring.

We didn’t want to wait for the next CD, so Jill recorded a special demo just for TED … Here, timed with the release of Helen Fisher’s TEDTalk, is Jill’s lyrical response: The End of Love (MP3. Duration: 3:33).
