Tom Lehrer‘s song “The Elements” is a favorite for chemists. It’s clever, entertaining and, well, purely chemical. The song has been used on Theo Gray’s iPad version of his book The Elements as shown below but the iPad version is way more than just the song and if you have an iPad and don’t have The Elements I recommend you get it!
But now a generation of children will get introduced to Tom Lehrer’s song because of Harry Potter, aka Daniel Radcliffe. His rendition is on YouTube. Young Radcliffe…very impressive!
