Periodic Table of Elements Playlist

Inspired by Materials World’s recent #materialsplaylist game on Twitter I decided that I would make a more complete and structured playlist of “materials”. While looking up songs I found both Materials World’s #materialsplaylist 2013 and this very useful list of songs featuring gold. I found that there were too many instrumental and heavy metal songs so I generally avoided them, preferring instead to list songs that audibly and explicitly names the element or material of their title in the song itself. There were also too many songs featuring diamonds to list so I chose to exclude them altogether rather than trying to select my favourites.

In the end I made 2 different playlists:

  1. Off the top of my head, you’re missing ‘Ýou Got the Silver’ and ‘Everything’s Turning to Gold’ by the Rolling Stones and ‘Chrome Plated Megaphone of Destiny’ by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention.
