Title: The Elements

Artist: Tom Lehrer

Album: An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer

Year Released: 1959

What It Is: To hell with Thomas Dolby! This IS Science! Actually, it is a bit dated, but it lists all 102 elements that were known and named in 1959.

Riffage / Hookage: Well, um…

Cowbell?: Um….

Words Of Wisdom: Go find a periodic table, science noob!

Mixology Report: Hah! Of course! For friends and fiends alike!

For The Good Of The Order: The elements that are now known and not named in the songs are as follows:  Lawrencium, Rutherfordium, Dubnium, Seaborgium, Bohrium, Hassium, Meitnerium, Darmstadtium, Roentgenium, Ununbium, Ununtrium, Ununquadium, Ununpentium, Ununhexium, and Ununoctium. Ununseptium (117) has not been discovered, but has a name waiting for it. Of course, discover of Ununseptium may drive the Earth into a black hole, so while it would be a great discovery, it also would be the last discovery ever. But what a way to go for that science geek genius.

Bone up on the table, peeps:
