The authors Brown and LeMay didn't call chemistry the "central science" for nothing. Chemistry is the heart, if not the soul, of all of the sciences. Without chemistry there would be no understanding of the universe in which we live, from the farthest galaxy to the nucleus of a cell.
*Theodore Brown and Eugene LeMay are the original authors of Chemistry, The Central Science.

Of course, while it is fun to listen to, the "Elements Song" has nothing to do with the periodic table, other than
both have the names of elements. Learning to sing the "Elements Song" may improve your self-worth, but it
won't help you learn anything about the periodic table or chemistry, other than how to pronounce the names
of the elements.
