One of our winning entries....

We are sophomores at Evanston Township High School and are extremely fond of chemistry class. We all hope to be be either rappers or professional wrestlers when we grow up (though chemists wouldn't be too bad). We think stoichometry is really cool, but we wrote the song and made the beat because we wanted to have fun with it. note: the concept of the song is based off of a song by Blackalicious called Alphabet Aerobics, but we used a different beat, one that we made using a program on my computer.
Element Aerobics (Original)
Hydrogen makes up ninety percent of the universe
Helium is colorless and odorless
Lithium is a solid only half as dense as wat-air
Ordinarily beryllium can't oxidize in air
Boron is a semiconductor not a conductor of metallics
Carbon is found in celestial bodies like comets
Nitrogen was called "Without life" because it's inert
When Oxygen's excited it's yellow-green and red so bright
Fluorine reacts with all organics and inorganics
Neon's discharge is so intense that it makes you want to be annexed.
Sodium is Na+ because of its strong electron pulls.
Magnesium is important to plants and animals
Aluminum is found in the earth crust
Silicon is on the sun notorious for its must.
Phosphorus is contained in bones and nervous tissue
Sulfur's pale yellow and brittle surface is its issue
Chlorine combines with all the elements
Argon makes a good atmospheric relevance
Potassium is never combined free in nature
Calcium forms a coating nitride that is for sure
Scandium is a very rare-earth metal
Titanium's low density and strong structure makes a good kettle
Vanadium has a corrosion resistance against many
Chromium is metallic, hard, and would make a good penny.
(Oh and by the way big ups to Matt Fenny)
Iron's nuclei is very stable
Cobalt is hard and is magnetic capable
Nickel is a fair conductor of electricity and heat
Copper makes the compounds oxide and sul-feet
Zinc is a bluish-white lustrous impresser
Gallium has a low vapor pressure
Germanium is an important semiconductor molecule
Arsenic and its poisonous compounds rule
Selenium is usually in a crystalline structure
Kato, Mead, and Zivin for sure.
Bromine is the only nonmetallic liquid
Krypton with orange spectral lines, kid
Rubidium ignites spontaneously in air
Strontium salts create beautiful flames in the burn hair.
Yttrium is in rare-earth minerals
Zirconium can ignite spontaneously and soils
Niobium starts to oxidize in air at high temperatures
Molybdenum is used in alloys, electrodes. And catalysts, but not furs.
Technetium is present in stellar matter
Ruthenium is a hard, white metal, unlike bladder
Rhodium has a high reflectance and is hard and durable
Palladium is the least dense nearly unmeltable
Silver has the highest electrical conductivity
Cadmium and its compounds have toxic activity
Indium when bent gives high pitched "screams"
Big ups to the volleyball, hockey, and Scholastic Bowl Teams
Tin resists distilled, sea, and soft tap water
Antimony is a poor heat conductor
Tellurium is brittle and easily pulverized
Iodine is displaced from iodides
Xenon in a vacuum tube produces a blue glow, which is irrelevant
Cesium is the most electropositive and most alkaline element
Barium oxidizes very easily and reacts with alcohol
Lutetium is difficult to separate from ethanol
The Lanthanoid Series is a group of elements with a 4f sublevel
Unlike the Lanthanoid's the actinoid series has 5f in its sub-schmevel
Hafnium is a ductile metal with silver lusters
Tantalum is almost completely immune to chemical attackers.
Tungsten has the highest melting point of all of 'um
Rhenium's density exceeds only that of platinum
Osmium is difficult to be fabricated
Iridium is highly colored so don't hate it.
Platinum is a common part of most fine jewelry
Gold is extremely expensive unless it is tomfoolery
Mercury is a fair conductor of electricity
Thallium is as soft as can be
Lead exposed to air tarnishes
Bismuth is the most diamagnetic metal there is
Polonium has more isotopes than any element
Astatine is a Halogen shmelement
Radon's main hazard is from inhalation
Francium Occurs as a result of an alpha disintegration v
At ordinary Temperatures Radium is a colorless gas
Big ups to the Ms. D's Chem/Phys Class
