In today's quiz, all the songs have a sequence of numbers! Some of these may be obscure (meaning, I know them, but never heard them on the radio).

[For you young people, a radio was a thing that used to transmit music, pre-Interent].

(Please keep the answers in spoilers, and if you have more song lyrics that are sequences of numbers, add them! Songs with just a single number don't really count). I've also tried to avoid a song where the number is just the title.

"Uno Dos Tres Catorce"

"Six Seven Five Three"

"Five Fifteen" (Obscure)

"Cuatro Cinco Cinco Seis"

"One One Twenty Twenty-Nine" (Obscure)

"One One One ... Two Two Two ... Three Three Three ..." (intermediate words omitted)

Edit -- If you know the answer, maybe your answer can just be a hint or the next few words, so that others can play along!

And add more! It's tough to think of these.

Richard Cheese sings these Spanish numbers (one, two, three, fourteen?) in his cover of U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday" even though it came from Vertigo, iirc.

Here's a follow-up quiz for those of a certain age (i.e., older than dirt). All of these number sequences are sung at the beginning of the song.

1. "One, two, three" (each word sung by a different person)

2. The singer first counts to two, and then to four, in two different languages

3. "One...two...uh, one, two, three, four" (obscure)

4. "One...two...one, two, three" (very faintly in background)

Problem with the original version of this song is, it goes on forever.

Seriously, they're still singing it.

This was my thought too; but, much like Five, Fifteen above, if my guesses were right, I wouldn't term them "obscure" necessarily.

That is a correct answer, and less obscure than the one I was thinking of.

I actually never listened to them, so there's at least one other legit answer!

OK - I was thinking that wasn't particularly obscure (although, if you're younger than 30-35, you may not have ever heard it ....)

My song is about 15 years old, on a minor album by a major star. It's definitely obscure. And I like the group listed above, and have some of their stuff, but didn't know this.
