Is it the Beatles?

One After 909
Two of Us
Revolution #1
Revolution #9 (Dave's never actually played this, has he?)
and damn if I can think of any others right now, though Paul solo and with Wings would add to the totals ("1984," has Dave ever played "Figure of Eight"?) ...


Nope, not the Beatles.  I've never heard of that first song anyway.


You've never heard of "One After 909"???
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

Having looked it up, of course I've heard it, but I guess I never focused on the name of the song before "Long & Winding Road" before.

anyway it's not in the Db.

finally getting some free time to try to polish off the edit of the Db, noticed another quizzable fact.

This band has by far the most songs in the Db that contain numbers in the titles, 6 total, including a double digit & a triple digit entry.  

(Note - in some cases the number is spelled as a word in the title, as in 'eight miles high')


Are you counting songs noted as "Part 1" and "Part 2"?  If you are, then maybe the Isley Brothers?  This is quite a stumper.

The band in question has one of those in the Db, the Isleys have none (& JB has two).  Hint: they have songs with a one, a two & a three in the Db.

I hadn't thought of Chicago, but they're probably in at #2 on this list since they've also got "Questions 67 & 68" and "In Terms of Two".

Speaking of numbers, I think this is going to be my 8000th post.  Woo Hoo!

Okay, here's the hint that will make it obvious:

The band with the most number songs has a number in their name.

That doesn't make it obvious.   :P

I can't think of any number songs from U2, actually.

Four Tops had "7-Rooms of Gloom," but I'm sure Dave's never played "Just Seven Numbers (Can Straighten Out My Life)."

Four Seasons had "Opus 17" but that's about it.

And before you posted this hint, I was thinking about guessing Dylan b/c of "Rainy Day Women #" and "Sooner or Later (One of Us Must Know)," but I doubt we've ever gotten "Love Minus Zero" or any of the really early numbered efforts.

Time for another.

This summer I vowed to get the Db up to date, after not having done so since last Oct, but it took me a while, and by the time I had sorted & scrubbed the data from Nov to mid-July, it was already late Aug.  So I quickly added the last six weeks up to Aug 31, which leads me to the following question.  

Between mid July & the end of Aug, which of the following 10 songs were  new entries in the Db?*

Allman Brothers - Statesboro Blues
Bruce Springsteen - Tunnel of Love
CCR - I Put A Spell On You
Doors - Hello, I Love You
Elton John - Elderberry Wine
Eric Clapton - Tulsa Time
Huey Lewis & The News - If This Is It
Rolling Stones - Angie
Rush - Big Money
Talking Heads - Wild Wild Life


*at this point the definition is a song certainly not heard for the preceeding 40 months, and also not in any of the 70% of sets that are in the Db for the 3 years before that.
