I did zero to ten a couple of years back. What songs can you think of that feature ordinals or cardinals greater than tenth or ten? Well, racking wracking my brains there's
Connie Stevens, Sixteen Reasons. With footage from David Lynch, "Mulholland Drive."
Simon and Garfunkel, 59th Street Bridge Song. What a great song! Slow down you hyperkinetic hustlers, you're moving too fast!
Cannibal and the Head Hunters, Land of 1000 Dances. This one goes out to Tom Coleman who probably danced to this at the El Monte Legion Stadium circa '65. "Be there or be square!"
Question Mark and the Mysterians, 96 Tears. Is that a Farfisa organ making that cheesy sound? This one goes out to Colin McGinn.
Bobby Darin, 18 Yellow Roses
Cannonball Adderley, 74 Miles Away
Chicago, 25 or 6 to 4
Frank Zappa, Twenty Small Cigars
Tom Waits, Ol '55
Paul Simon, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
Billy Ward and the Dominoes, Sixty Minute Man
Ike Turner, Rocket 88
Beatles, When I'm 64
Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited. Alternate bootleg take. Arguably better than the album version.
And hundreds more . . .
