This Japanese translation of Tom Leher's classic song The Elements comes embedded in the new version the iPad app 元素図鑑 (The Elements for Japan). If you like the song and the images of the elements, you will like even more the stories and rotatable objects you'll find in this best-selling ebook/app for the iPad. And if you don't have an iPad or iPhone4, then you'll want to look at the printed book version, which is big and beautiful and fun to read, even if the pictures don't move.
The song was arranged by Thomas Howard Lichtenstein and performed by his daughters Angelina and Jennifer. The original tune is Gilbert&Sullivan's Major General's Song, the same tune used by Tom Lehrer for his famous 1959 recording of the song (performed in English). Produced by Theodore Gray. Videography by Nick Mann. Production coordination by Kazuko Higuchi at ongaq.com, recorded at oden studio, Tokyo and Studio 264, Osaka.
