How fun is this AsapScience video written, directed and performed by Mitchell Moffit? Based on the famous can can piece from Orphée aux enfers by Jacques Offenbach, The NEW Periodic Table Song makes it fun to sing all of the elements… in order! Find it on Bandcamp, and if you need help with the lyrics, find those in the video notes.
Of course, this video is an excellent addition to a long line of elements songs. They Might Be Giants‘ Meet The Elements is one of our favorites, and of course there’s Tom Lehrer’s classic.
We also recommend the Here Comes Science CD+DVD by They Might Be Giants and the book The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe by Theodore Gray.
