Five Things: Songs About the Periodic Table

I'll admit it: I never learned the periodic table. I probably never will. But if you're up for it, here are some songs to help you out.

1. They Might Be Giants, "Meet the Elements" 
My children listen to this pretty much non-stop.

2. Tom Lehrer, "The Elements" 
It's the song that defines the genre.

3. "Periodic Table of Rock" 
Isn't this the guy from the first Freecreditreport.com band?

4. The "Learn the Periodic Table Song" 
If you like Billy Joel, this one's for you.

5. Peter Weartherall, "The Periodic Table Song" 
Who knew that chemistry would be such fodder for children's singers?
