So to follow up last week’s theme of letters, this week we’re exploring numbers for Song Lyric Sunday. Well OK, this one was much easier for me.
The first song that came to mind not only features a number in the title and lyrics, but also a number in the band’s name! I don’t think I need to say anything more about this other than to present you my selection for the week: “One (Is The Loneliest Number)” originally by Herry Nilsson but made famous by the band Three Dog Night.
The lyrics are in the video so I’ll not transcribe them here.
Now just for shits and giggles, I looked up the original version of the song having never heard it before myself (I in fact was unaware Three Dog Night’s version was a cover until I researched the songwriter!). Note some lyrical differences as well.
And that’s a wrap for this week. I just have this feeling my selection will be duplicated but oh well. I do like this song, even though I disagree with the premise of it (in my experience two was worse than one!).
