You can use tesla coils to play pretty much any song, whether it's the Mario Bros or Doctor Who themetunes. You can even play Poker Face, as this video demonstrates.

If you don't happen to have a pair of tesla coils knocking about in your shed though, you should head over to the Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland on June 11th, to watch the Tesla Orchestra performs well-known pop ditties to the audience. Personally, I'd rather rip my ears off that listen to a Lady Gaga song—even if it's played using Tesla Coils, so join me in checking out the Tesla Orchestra's back catalog on YouTube here. [PhysOrg]
