Volcanoes, Lava, and Magma Music

Magma, lava, and vulcanologists all make for hot songs!

There are some good songs about geology out there, but my favorites are often songs about volcanoes and other igneous features.

Check out the songs below and see what you think.

Geology Songs as Gifts

Geology Songs as Gifts

Have a geologist that rocks your world? Give them the gift of song!

Get some of the geology songs mentioned on this page and my other geology song pages, then burn them onto a CD or place them in their mp3 player. It'll be a fun and creative gift they'll remember every time they listen to the songs :)

This Volcanic Page

I'll be adding more songs about volcanoes, magma, geology and the earth sciences as I find them.

I tried to put the lyrics when I could find them. Also, some songs are only available on Amazon or only on YouTube, wherever I could find them I added them. When the song was both on YouTube and Amazon I put both in case you want to own it for yourself. I know a lot these are on my download list.

Hope you enjoy, and rock on!

Ring of Fire - By Dr. Richard Alley

This song is a parody of "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash.

It talks about the Pacific Ring of Fire, a highly active area known for its subduction zones and consequently, earthquakes and volcanoes.

Ring of Fire Lyrics

Lyrics:

Ring of Fire

Subduction is a burning thing,

It feeds a fiery ring,

Cold, dense ocean floor will soon retire,

down through the mantle for a ring of fire.

Subduction scrapes off mud

'round a burning ring of fire

Takes water down,

Drives the volcanoes higher.

Makes light andesite,

from a ring of fire,

a ring of fire

Basalt is born cold and dark

At a spreading ridge or

Hawaii's Hot Spot Park.

Dangerous stratavolcanoes

Fountain higher

when fed by subduction

and a ring of fire.

Subduction scrapes off mud

'round a burning ring of fire

Takes water down,

Drives the volcanoes higher.

Makes light andesite,

at a Ring of fire,

a ring of fire

Great earthquakes from

the moving load

Stick, slip, and plates

just might implode

Eruptions, landslides

we require

Tsunami warnings

from the Ring of Fire

Subduction scrapes off mud

'round a burning ring of fire

Takes water down,

Drives the volcanoes higher.

Makes light andesite,

at a Ring of fire,

a ring of fire

St Helens blew high

others blow higher

Go in awe and fear

to the Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire

Volcano Song

Eyjafjallajokull Song

Eyjafjallajokull - pronounced ay-uh-fyat-luh-yoe-kuutl-ul - is the name of Iceland's volcano that in 2010 threw up plumes of ash clouds, causing airspaces across Europe to close down.

If a plane flies through volcanic ash and it is sucked into the engines, it can cause a plane to stall and crash.

Leaving on a Jet Plane Parody

This volcano song is a parody of Leaving a Jet Plane.

It's called Maybe Leaving on a Jet Plane and it's about the Iceland volcano that shut down air traffic for a while in 2010.

Teaching Kids About Volcanoes

The volcanic song below is a cute one for kids from Mr. R.'s Songs for Teaching.

Lyrics from Mr. R's Volcano Song

LYRICS

Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh- Volcano,
Don't erupt right now!
Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh-Volcano,
Don't Ka-boom Ka-pow!

Magma, magma
Ready to blow,
Magma, magma
Out the vent hole!
Lava, lava,
Flowing right down,
Lava, lava,
Let's get outta' town...

Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh- Volcano,
Don't erupt right now!
Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh-Volcano,
Don't Ka-boom Ka-pow!

Gas, and Ash, and molten lava,
From volcanoes fly,
Eruptions send all types of things,
Up into the sky! (repeat)

Magma, magma
Ready to blow,
Magma, magma
Out the vent hole!
Lava, lava,
Flowing right down,
Lava, lava,
Let's get outta' town...

Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh- Volcano,
Don't erupt right now!
Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh-Volcano,
Don't Ka-boom Ka-pow!

(RAP Section)

Mt. St Helens,
Mauna Loa,
Those are only 2,
Etna & Vesuvius,
Tall ones with a view!
Pinatubo Philippines,
Japan has Mount Fuji,
Arenal, Costa Rica,
More below the sea!
Colima's there in Mexico,
Thera's there in Greece,
Volcanoes are erupting,
There's never any peace...
Galeras in Colombia,
Rising so much higher,
Krakatoa, Indonesia,
In the Ring of fire!

Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh- Volcano,
Don't erupt right now!
Oh-Oh-Oh,
Volcano,
Oh-Volcano,
Don't Ka-boom Ka-pow!
