I fill in several times a year for a guy who does a two-hour singer-songwriter show on a local radio station. I always pick a theme for my show, and in August 2005 the theme was “music by the numbers.” Omitting the one and two as per OP, here are selections from each hour:

I don’t know that track, but I have his album Inside, and it’s one of my favorites.

Here’s a twist–they’re all phone numbers:

Pennsylvania 6-5000–Glenn Miller Orchestra

Lonesone 7-7203–Hanshaw Hawkins (also covered by Justin Tubb)
Dial AL 14883–Mark Dinning
867-5309/Jenny–Tommy Tutone
853-5937–Squeeze
606-0842–The B-52’s

It’s from The Essential Bill Morrissey on Rounder (2004)

We had the great pleasure a couple of years ago to have him visit a small venue in our Oregon town. A very good evening, with a highly-appreciative crowd of 75 who got to mix and mingle with him after the show.

“99 Luftballons” = Nena
“25 O’Clock” - Dukes of Stratosphear
“50 Ways To Leave Your Lover” - Paul Simon
“I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” - The Proclaimers
“Mambo No. 5” - Lou Bega
“32 Footsteps” - They Might Be Giants
“16 Tons” - Tennessee Ernie Ford
“8 Days a Week” - The Beatles
“Film at 11” - The 77s
“22,000 Days” - The Moody Blues

Plus, I’d begin and end the mix with that Sesame Street pinball song—the one that goes “1 2 3 4 5, 6 7 8 9 10, 11 12!”
