The periodic table in song

In The Elements, Tom Lehrer has fun with the periodic table.

About Joanne


  1. Remember this from the ’60’s. We were taught that it was more important to remember why the elements fell into the groups that they do, than to be able to recite their names. But the song was great fun.

    Mike Stanfill’s animation of Tom Lehrer’s The Elements is wonderful but I always wanted one that used the periodic table. Thanks for posting this.

  3. No love for all the elements in the known Universe, through Element 118?
