Counting Numb3r5 With The Green Monkey

There's not a lot of time left in 2008, but I think there should be just enough for another glorious Green Monkey mix.

So, let's celebrate music together with Volume 14 of the GMMP series: Numb3r5.

For those intimidated by previous monkey mixes, this one might be a mix for you to try. Of course, the brave-hearted who have participated in the past are also welcome to play.

There is only one rule for this mix, and it is very simple.

All the selections must have a number of some sort in the title. There can be an actual number in the title, or the number can be spelled out (i.e. "Two"). I'll even allow adjectives like "Seventh".

For Numb3r5, there will be eight total participants who have six selections to choose. With me in the mix, that leaves seven open slots.

Let's have some mathematical fun, already! Leave a comment if you want to participate.


UPDATE:

I'm not entirely sure about this, but I *think* the slots have been filled. If I have included you as a participant and you don't want to play, please let me know.

Anyways, here's the people who like the number fun:

Allen L.
Dale
SamuraiFrog
GETkristiLOVE
theultramundane
Bull
Flannery Alden
Splotchy


Participants, please leave your choices (song/artist) as a comment on this post. I'll do the legwork of pulling the songs together.

If I can't find a song, I might bug you for it, but I normally can get everything myself.

Dang, I was going to suggest something like this when it was my turn to co host one of these with you.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Actually my idea was to a do 'Name and number" mix. All songs would have to have a name and or a number in the title, for example,"867-5309/Jenny" or "In the Year 2525."

Allen L. said...

Oh, yeah. I dig. I wanna play.
