"Tom Lehrer is, in my opinion, is the cleverest and funniest man of the twentieth century, and he's kind of my hero, and he wrote a song called 'The Elements' because he was a scientist and it's basically -- it's the name of every element in the periodic table, and that's my party trick." -Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter star) on The Graham Norton Show.

He gets through it, despite a few flubs. Impressive, that Radcliffe.

Here's a fan video set to the original Lehrer performance:
