Playlist by the numbers

I thought that “song titles that start with numbers” would be a pretty cool playlist. I’d thought I’d share some of my favorites.

Playlist by the numbers

Posted on December 30, 2012 | 2 Comments

The other day I plugged my crappy old Insignia Pilot into the truck stereo’s auxiliary input,  & I started playing the songs on my trusty & hardly ever updated mp3 player in order by song title.  I have no idea why I decided to take it off of “random”, but I did.  (Sadly, my 500 GB hard drive has stopped working and unless it’s fixed I’ll lose a TON of music, so whatever this Best Buy generic brand mp3 player holds may be it for my collection for a while!)

I thought that “song titles that start with numbers” would be a pretty cool playlist.  I’d thought I’d share some of my favorites.



(For the embedded YouTube videos of each of the songs, check the blog out here: http://aixelsyd13.wordpress.com/2012/12/30/playlist-by-the-numbers/ )




I noticed I’m missing a song that starts with 8.  Ha ha.  What songs would you put on your numbers playlist?  Dig any of these?

Or "10538 Overture" - ELO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqgH3RNc1z4 Or "15 Step" - Radiohead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrVKSKQKO1c I can't think of any songs that start with "8." I'd have to Google it. This is going to distract me for the rest of the night, by the way!

Nice! Bonus points for including a YouTube link.
AiXeLsyD13 January 02, 2013 at 01:14 AM
"30 Days in the Hole" & "21 Days In Jail" could be a whole different playlist. Ha ha. I dunno if Three Dog Night would count, unless it was 3 Dog Night... If we're looking at how I ordered the playlist.

Ha ha, sorry... sort of. This is fun, right? Ha ha. I did have a FB post & a Tweet with "8" songs. Should I give them away?
Erin Faulk January 02, 2013 at 01:40 AM
Yes, please do!

Nice one!
AiXeLsyD13 January 03, 2013 at 02:27 AM
Have to admit, I'm not a DMB fan...but a good fit to the list.
AiXeLsyD13 January 03, 2013 at 02:28 AM
Nice! \m/
AiXeLsyD13 January 03, 2013 at 02:29 AM
Nice! Sneaker Pimps, Dropkick Murphys, & Skid Row... sounds like my CD collection! Goldfinger's "99 Luftballoons" cover would fit here too.

Everyone has missed one of the most obvious! 8 Days a Week - The Beatles
Erin Faulk January 03, 2013 at 01:10 PM
Oh geez. I am ashamed to call myself a music lover. Thanks for pointing that one out!

Ha ha, that is pretty bad. Nice pick! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs5qsk0pc6Y
AiXeLsyD13 January 03, 2013 at 11:55 PM
Although, I think the track is "Eight Days a Week" so it sort of doesn't fit.
AiXeLsyD13 January 04, 2013 at 12:00 AM
"96 Tears" is a great jam! I'll have to check the others out. The wife just suggested another obvious one... Jay-Z's "99 Problems"!
Ed M January 04, 2013 at 12:49 PM
1984 - David Bowie 2+2=? - Bob Seger 29 Palms - Robert Plant 3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds - Jefferson Airplane 40 - U2 409 - Beach Boys 98.6 - Keith

Ed M - are you Googling? Ha ha. In all serious, nice additions... Except for the U2. I'm the one guy on the planet that doesn't get it.
Ed M January 04, 2013 at 07:17 PM
Nope. Just rummaging through my iPod and my memory! I love music! I'm the sound guy at my church and also play drums!
