Music Monday Nov. 28: A Number of Bands


There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.

Maybe you will find a new favorite.

In the 90s and into the 00s there seemed to be an explosion of “numbered” band names.

Blink 182, Maroon 5, Finger 11, Third Eye Blind, Three Doors Down, Sum 41, Five for Fighting, Ben Folds Five, One Direction, 21 Pilots, to name just a few.

Now, There have been earlier number name groups. Two that come to mind are The Four Tops and The Jackson 5.

Here are two of my favorites from Third Eye Blind.

Here is the second to last installment of, The View from Here:

  1. They’ve done the square root of diddly squat in our charts: no album hits and Semi-Charmed Life was their highest single by miles, getting to #33. I’m surprised they didn’t get a lawsuit from Spin Doctors though 😊
