Periodic Table of Songs

OK, I admit it, I'm a geek! 🤓 So this topic includes any song that has an element name in the title or anywhere in its lyrics. 

 

I'm pretty sure there aren't any songs about Ytterbium, for example, so we're not aiming to cover the whole Periodic Table, but there are LOTS of songs with more common elements mentioned, such as:

 

Neon Rainbow by The Box Tops

 

BTW, no worries if you repeat a song that's already been mentioned (nobody has time to scroll through multiple pages of previous posts) ... and repeating the same element in multiple songs is highly encouraged!

The only true answer to this question is Tom Lehrer's "Element Song".  It has ALL the elements in it.

Here is the mother of them all. 🙂 Yesterday (April 9) was folk singer-comedian-mathematician Tom Lehrer's 90th birthday, and his "The Elements" song was mentioned in a Nature magazine story.
