Numbers in Song Titles - #MusicMovesMe #BlogBoost

Welcome to #MusicMovesMe.  Every Monday we board a train of music.  Every other week we have a theme, and on alternate weeks, we can blog about any music we wish.  Now, let's get to rockin'!

Our honorary conductor of the month, Michelle (Naila Moon), has chosen for today's theme "songs with numbers in the title".  I can't wait to see what my fellow music bloggers have gathered as their contribution.

Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are headed by our head Engineer XmasDolly.  Her co-conductors are:  Callie of JAmerican Spice, (who right now is visiting when she can - please keep her in your thoughts ) and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥   Also, co-conducting is  Cathy from Curious as a Cathy   And, finally, me.
Last week fellow Music Moves Me blogger John Holton introduced me to a Chicago (the group) tribute band called Leonid and Friends.  I love early Chicago and, for the most part, these Russian musicians are spot on.  And, knowing that some early Chicago songs had numbers in the title...

...I couldn't resist.  First up, Leonid and Friends doing 25 or 6 to 4.

That lead to their tribute to "Questions 67& 68".  I have to admit, I was more impressed with "25 or 6 to 4", but that's just my personal opinion.

Now, switching to one of my favorite duos, Simon and Grfunkel, The 59th Street Bridge Song.

The next four are contributions from my spouse, who normally doesn't get involved in my blogging, but he couldn't resist this time.
An instrumental by Deodato - September 13.

Steppenwolf - 40 Days and 40 Nights (a cover of the Muddy Waters song from 1956.)

Thirty Days in the Hole by Humble Pie, from 1972.

Creedence Clearwater Revival with Ninety Nine and a Half, from their debut album.

One more from me - the Rolling Stones, from their psychedelic years: Two Thousand Light Years from Home.

Thank you, Naila Moon - this was so much fun!

Besides being Monday, this is Day 16 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge #BlogBoost.


  1. Alana,

    Leonid & Friends are fabulous Chicago Tribute band, aren't they?'ll have to tell your husband all of his song selections are new-to-me. I thought Deodate 13 in particular a very funky, fun song that put the groove in my move this morning. Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me today, dear friend. Have a great and tunetastic week!

  2. Interesting set of numbers (double entendre) you shared today.

  3. A great set list. Thanks for sharing.

  4. So many favourites there! . . . feelin' groovy . . .

  5. Interesting mix. I do look forward to your Monday music posts!!

  6. Thanks for the shout-out and for playing some more Leonid & Friends! Like I said, the little goofs and changes in the arrangements just prove that it's not just them pantomiming to records. "Questions 67 & 68" leads off what I consider to be my favorite album side they ever recorded (first album, record 1, side 2). It was their first single and didn't go over so well.

    My compliments to your husband on his choices. I actually saw Muddy Waters in concert doing "40 days and 40 nights" and Steppenwolf's is a bit faster, but still true to the original.

    Great set here, start to finish!

  7. It has been ages since I've heard the 59th street bridge sone! thanks for including it. my tunes are up ans well and a special invire to help celebrate a special lady's Birthday!

  8. Well, look at you! You have definitely ROCKED THE HOUSE TODAY my friend! WOW! You have touched every corner there is. Thanks for the boogie and I'd have to say my favorite one is Chicago is special both tunes, but you can only keep booging with 30 days in the hole for sure... I don't think I've ever heard that Rollin' Stones tune... hmmmm Luvin' Steppin' Wolf... I saw them just a few years ago they're gettin' up there in years, but they're still rockin'! WOO HOO!

  9. Those are some great songs from my youth. That's one of my fave Rolling Stones' songs.

  10. Wow, you and your spouse made those numbers hot this week. Majority of them were new to me but that is one of the things I love about 4M's.

    Rock on!

  11. Wow! You did an amazing job on the number theme! So many new songs I've been introduced to! Love the introductions! :) Thanks so much for the dance - hope you're having a fabulous weekend! :)
