Numbers, Take 2

(aired 10/28/11)

numbers

I originally featured the topic of songs with numbers in the titles back in July 2009. Even though the order was in sequential order, from smallest (one) to largest (nine million), there were were still plenty of gaps. For today’s show, there are no missing numbers as we progress from one all the way to 33. Quite a feat! It’s all thanks to Derek Keevil, a mastermind listener who provided the majority of this playlist.

Note: Even though my live show made it all the way to 33, the recording of the show (which you can hear below) ended after #30. So I’ve included individual links to the last three songs to hear online.
