Number Songs


There’s a new book out that attempts to rank all of the best “number songs” in the history of popular music (like the one above).

Check out a Top Ten list of “number songs” here.  How many have you heard before?


Read the article above and watch at least two of the music videos.  Write a paragraph for each explaining what makes it a good “number song” (you can borrow words from the writeup, but don’t just copy the author’s ideas).  Name a favorite number song not on the list (include the artist’s name) and explain in a paragraph what makes it a good “number song”.

I’ve included some of my favorite “number songs” in the comments.  Feel free to add yours.
