In tribute to Julian, stimulated by Radio Three – bless them – playing this song today, here is Daniel Radcliffe’s party piece. It’s Tom Lehrer’s Elements Song. Then, just below, is a three year old doing the same ditty, and finally, the Lehrermeister himself doing it brilliantly. As a bonus, at the bottom, it is Tom Lehrer’s dark comedic take on the 1960s Cold War nuclear face-off, “We’ll all go together when we go”.
Tom Lehrer is a Harvard mathematician.
And a big shout out to Gilbert and Sullivan.
