What Sounds the Coolest? Pi or Tau

You may have noticed that today is Pi Day (or Half-Tau Day). Because of the special occasion, I thought I should post something. Since π ≈ 3.14159, I decided to set the post to go up at 1:59.

I have posted numerous times about the Pi vs Tau debate. All of the reasonings involved mathematics. However, it is fun to analyze completely non-mathematical representations of these numbers.

There have been videos posted on YouTube of a musical representation of both pi and tau. If you want to celebrate pi day without a mathematical burden, listen to these and decide which number sounds cooler.
