Welcome to week 15 of our seventh season!  [biggrin]

This week is all about numbers, and I'm turning it into a little game.  

If you want to contribute songs, all I ask is that you post a song with a name (or band name) that is a higher number than the one before.

However, at any time somebody can post a "zero" or "one" song to bring us back to the start.

Got it?


So to get the ball rolling, we start with "One Kind of Love", from our very own Brian Wilson.  (No Pier Pressure, 2015.)





Our next band, Maroon 5, is lead by the ridiculously delectable Adam Levine.  "Sunday Morning".  (Songs About Jane, 2002.)





The White Stripes.  Jack White and his first wife Meg, who he often refers to as his "sister", follow with "Seven Nation Army".  (Elephant, 2003.)





The final song for this week comes from 10CC.  "I'm Mandy Fly Me", the song title based on the National Airlines advertising campaigns of 1971.   (How Dare You! 1976)





Any problems playing these, please let me know.  


Have fun (why not!) and I look forward to your votes and contributions!

hi bonnie -- This is going to be fun!

How about this significant achievement in recorded sound? 

Pilt Down Five aka the Piltdown Five (that doesn't count), "'32 Ford" (that does), year unknown, reason for showing pictures of motorcycles also unknown, reason for showing pictures of women known.



There are still a few hours to vote next door....

Were the Pilt down Five anything to do with the Piltdown Men? ... who recorded Brontosaurus stomp on the old purple Capitol 45rpm (as it was here in UK anyway, when I bought it back in early 60's (when I was about 8 or so)). I believe Brontosaurus Stomp was on the Shut Down compilation from various artists. (And hence why the Beach Boys called their next album Shut Down Vol.2

I never heard of them before this morning. The song appears on a British compilation called "Hot Rod Rockabilly".

ZZ Top doing their math:


The Showmen, featuring General Johnson (later the voice of the Chairmen of the Board), also like to add up the numbers:


And CSN making the numbers count:


Finally, Paul Simon submitting his total ways:



Fun battle theme, bonnie!

Gold-10cc...Flyin' the highest...this week.
Silver...Brian...perhaps a few more years to ferment.
Bronze...White Stripes...For cleaner lookin' teeth...on-line.

Moron5...of tin.  a band that's OH-so-overrated.  [and, at the same time oh-so-almost (but just short of)-average]

Thanks Lee for putting forward the first vote, and thanks to those who are already getting into the spirit of the game!

Welcome aboard jerry!  Feel free to vote as well.

There seems to be lots of girls and engines this week, so I'll throw in this piece of rock crap from Sammy Hagar, who, dressed in a cute little Micheal Jackson/Peter Pan inspired onsie from the eighties, and with straight outta bed hair, explains why he's just too bad for the law.  Too bad, indeed.

(Nat) King Cole Trio, "(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66", 1946 -- it's only been recorded a 1000 times or so since then.



Not ready to vote yet -- need to listen to one of them more in case I'm missing something.

One of the songs credited with laying the groundwork for what was to become rock and roll a few years later:

No time like the present.

Gold -- Brian Wilson -- Not one of my favorites from the album but it has enough good moments.

Silver -- The White Stripes -- A close second, although the video was making me dizzy.

Bronze -- Maroon 5 -- Not bad.

Tin -- 10cc -- I was ready to rank this high, but it doesn't really go anywhere.

Bill Haley and the Saddlemen, "Rocket 88", recorded in 1951 a few months after the original recording



PS -- I see you got here first, Tom. So I submit this one merely for comparison purposes.
