Try Rod MacDonald's "The Unearthly Fire" on his CD "No Commercial
Traffic". Laurie McCormack
Tin Angel by Joni Mitchell Anything by Nickel Creek Copperfields by Jim Ringer
Hydrogen Jukebox by Allen Ginsberg (not folk, by any stretch!) Helium by
John Forster Calcium Night Light by (can't remember) etc. I think I
searched the All Music Guide by element name and came up with a lot of
rock music and some vaguely folky stuff. Good luck. Gene Endres WICB,
Seamus Kennedy has a tune called The Chemist's Drinking Song on his Smile
& a Tear album. A copy can be requested for airplay at email@example.com
or purchased at CDBaby (depending on why you are inquiring..).
Not a song, but Les Barker's "Administerium and the Science of Unclear
Physics" should be included...
Everything else I can think of is physics, too: "In Planck Time" by
D-Squared, Eddie From Ohio's "Quick"... Frank Gosar
I'm sure you might find someone doing Frank Loesser's "I'll Know," which
has chemistry as a central discussion point, albeit romantic chemistry.
