Video of The Elements, sung by Tom Lehrer

Ryan Britton pointed out this video of “The Elements,” recorded in 1959 by musical humorist Tom Lehrer. It gives you all chemical elements known at the time of writing, up to number 102, nobelium.

Sung to the tune of the Major-General’s Song from The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan. Thanks Ryan!
