Hey boys and girls, here comes a playlist all about numbers! What’s your favorite number? Mine is 1,989,345,322,565! That’s the exact amount of stars in our galaxy! Ok, ok, I don’t know that for a fact, but it sounds plausible. And no, this is not a children’s playlist. Songs About Numbers features artists and songs that probably should not be listened to by children. Seriously, if you let your kids listen to Prince, I have to question your parenting. Ok, ok, just kidding. Anyways, you’re probably wondering what’s on this week’s playlist. Well, let me tell you.
Songs About Numbers features a wide array of songs. Some of these songs feature years and dates, such as December 1963 by Frankie Valli and 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins. Some feature phone numbers, 867-5309 Jenny and Pennsylvania 6-5000. Most are just random numbers though. 7 by Prince, One by U2, Two Princes by Spin Doctors, Three Little Birds by Bob Marley, 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago, 1234 by Feist, I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers. Everyone from Nena to Dolly Parton to R.E.M. to Public Enemy to Blur. You’ll need to add it up when we’re all done! No, I apologize, The Violent Femmes aren’t on this list. However, maybe I’ll make a playlist about math soon. But I digress.
I truly hope you and all your numbers enjoy this week’s playlist.
Songs about Numbers is available on three formats
Neil Young is waging a war against Spotify. Maybe you’re taking his side, alongside Joni Mitchell, and the rest of CSNY (although their music is still up on Spotify). Whatever, if you’re still Rockin’ in the Free World and Searching for a Heart of Gold, you have options. AudioPerfecta’s playlists are available via Youtube and Apple Music. If someone wants to buy me a Tidal membership, I’ll be happy to post the playlists as well.
in the words of “Weird” Al as heard on this very playlist, “I’d rather rip my heart right out of my ribcage With my bare hands and then throw it on the floor And stomp on it ’till I die. Than spend one more minute with you.
Ok, just kidding. Seriously, folks, I hope you have a wonderful week. Rock on and rock steady!
