"Sweet Information" is a song by Jonathan Coulton that was initially created as John Hodgman's theme song during the audio recording of Little Gray Books Lecture #29, "How to Communicate Without the Aid of Wires." It was intended for potential use as the radio theme song for the lecture series, which at the time was being pitched to NPR and other broadcast companies as a potential radio series.

The lyrics for the same theme song were eventually rewritten to become the theme song used for the book tour, and later the opening song to the audiobook version of John's book, The Areas of My Expertise, and then re-written again as the theme song for the More Information Than You Require book tour as well.
