Songs with Numbers in the Title Presented by The Count
This week’s theme for #MusicMovesMe has been selected by our guest conductor, Michele from Musings & Merriments.
There really are quite a few songs out there with numbers in the title. And it’s strange, while I really never watched Sesame Street as a child, whenever I think of numbers, I think of The Count from Sesame Street.
So today, The Count is going to assist me with this post (just don’t tell the folks at Sesame Street, because I don’t have THAT kind of money!)
"One" is a song written by Harry Nilsson, and made popular by Three Dog Night. The song was released as the second single from Three Dog Night's first album. It became their first of seven gold records over the next five years. The song reached number five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and spent three weeks at number two on the Cash Box Top 100. It also reached number four in Canada
"Love Me Two Times" is a song by the American rock band the Doors. It first appeared on their second studio album Strange Days. It was edited to a 2:37 length and released as the second single (after "People Are Strange") from that album, and reached number 25 on the charts in the United States.
"Gimme Three Steps" is a song by southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd released on its 1973 debut album,. It was written by Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant.
“Four Horsemen” is from The Clash’s third studio album, London Calling.
"It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" is a song performed by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett, and written by Jim "Moose" Brown and Don Rollins. It was released in June 2003 as the lead single from Jackson's 2003 compilation album Greatest Hits Volume II.
“A Dozen Roses and a Six Pack” - written by Cole Swindell. Swindell has written singles for Craig Campbell, Thomas Rhett, Scotty McCreery, and Luke Bryan, and has released two albums for Warner Bros. Records Nashville. He has released nine singles, of which seven have charted within the Top 5 of Hot Country Songs and/or Country Airplay.
"Seven Nation Army" is a song by the White Stripes. It was released as the lead single from their fourth studio album, Elephant, in March 2003, and reached number one on the Alternative Songs chart —maintaining that position for three weeks.
"867-5309/Jenny" is a 1981 song written by Alex Call and Jim Keller and performed by Tommy Tutone that was released on the album Tommy Tutone 2, on the Columbia Records label. It peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #16 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart in May 1982. The song caused a fad of people dialing 867-5309 and asking for "Jenny".
"9 to 5 (Morning Train)" is a popular song written by British songwriter Florrie Palmer and recorded by Sheena Easton in 1980, becoming her biggest hit. It peaked at number three in the United Kingdom in August 1980 and was certified gold. It was released in the United States in February 1981, where it reached number one, becoming Easton's only number one chart-topper.
"Ten Years Gone" is a song by Led Zeppelin from their 1975 album Physical Graffiti. Record producer Rick Rubin has described the song as, "A deep, reflective piece with hypnotic, interweaving riffs. Light and dark, shadow and glare. It sounds like nature coming through the speakers."
