9 To 5: Add It Up With These Awesome Numerical Songs
19 January 2017, 12:24
From Arctic Monkeys to Radiohead, we celebrate Dolly Parton's Birthday with these number-laden tracks.
It's Dolly Parton's 71st Birthday, so why not celebrate the 9 to 5 legend by looking back at the all the songs with numbers in their titles?
Whether they're adding or subtracting, remembering a vintage year, or looking to the future, we've got some of the best numerical-based anthems below.
Dolly Parton - 9 to 5
This track from the bombshell might not be an indie banger, but it feels like its been the soundtrack to our lives forever. Plus, who can forget that AWESOME record-breaking Glastonbury performance where Dolly put the Sunday Legends slot on the map.
Radiohead - 2+2= 5
The first track on Radiohead’s Hail To The Thief album not only has numbers, but it makes an attempt at maths too.
Beatles - Eight Days A Week
Blur - Song 2
Kings Of Leon - Four Kicks
Arcade Fire - Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)
Foo Fighters - The One
The One video saw Foo Fighters go back to art school and study various disciplines, including acting and ballet. No mention of maths though...
Jack White - Sixteen Saltines
The Strokes 12:51
Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
Pulp - Disco 2000
No number or year-based list is complete without Pulp's futuristic love song, Disco 2000, which has pretty much become Britpop's answer to Prince's 1999.
