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!

At some point along the way, I seem to remember that we decided to expand into other chemistry-related terms, (like Miss Atomic Bomb by the Killers), so I'm going to throw this one out there:

This may be cheating but how about any Freddy Mercury song?

"Maxwell's Silver Hammer" - The Beatles. Even todays kids enjoy this humourus Beatles song.
