Daniel Radcliffe Sings "The Elements" on The Graham Norton Show Video

You Can Take the Wizard Out of Hogwarts . . .

The following excerpt is written by My Scarlett Lady, who posted it on her OnSugar blog born for the rose and the pearl.

But you can't take the education out of the boy. Or so it would seem. (Alternatively, you can take the boy out of school . . . ) Well would you look at that! Harry did pay attention in Potions after all (or at least, he read Snape's Potions textbook way too much and started to sound like Hermione — being able to quote sections at will — 10 points to Gryffindor). I wasn't originally going to write about this, as it might seem a little geeky and would lead to my being scorned/laughed at, but I decided to just go for it!

Daniel Radcliffe appeared on The Graham Norton Show whilst promoting the first part of the last Harry Potter film (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and whilst there performed his "party trick," which seems to be Tom Lehrer's song "The Elements," which includes the first 102 elements in the Periodic table up to Nobelium (it was written in 1959 remember, so several elements had yet to be discovered). Enjoy!
