Weekly Song Challenge — Numbers Game

  • Musical Notes

For this week’s Weekly Song Challenge, Laura has asked us to post three videos about songs and numbers.

Her rules are:

  • Copy the rules and add them to our own post, pinging back to Laura’s post.
  • Post music videos for our answers to the musical questions.
  • Tag two people anyone who wants to participate!

So here goes.

1. Post a video of a song by a band with a number in their name.

How about Maroon 5?

2. Post a song by a one-hit wonder.

Let’s hear it for Dexys Midnight Runners.

3. Post a video of a song that has a number in lyrics and/or title.

Hmm. I guess I could also have chosen this group for the first question, too.

Okay, your turn!

    From memory Dexy’s had at least three big hits, in the UK at any rate. Did you ever get Benny Hill? I’m sure you must’ve done, I think he was worldwide at one stage. Very dated, very sexist, but I loved his song Ernie. Did you know, he drove the fastest milkcart in the west?

    Or did we just learn that although the words look the same, we speak a different language 😀

      I do remember that Benny Hill Head a TV show, but I don’t think it ever achieved the popularity here of Monty Python and I don’t really recall watching it. And in the U.S., Dexys only hit was “Come on Eileen.”

    Dexy’s was telling “Eileen” to come on for ever- or at least months- on the charts. Those damn blue coveralls😂
