1952 Vincent Black Lightning - Del McCoury Band 

Before you go and listen to it I must warn those who donít like bluegrass music, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS SONG... it just might change your mind!

Surprised none of our resident Rush fans have jumped in with 2112 yet.
They also have Force Ten and One Little Victory.

Great topic, Doug - this was a fun exercise. There are so many ways to narrow it down: one / two / three digit numbers, years in the title, numerals vs. spelled out. For example: Prince's penchant 4 using numbers instead of spelling out words means U could restrict yourself 2 his catalog and produce multiple song lists!

I just followed a rabbit hole exploring the guitar riff of Stevie Nick's Edge of Seventeen from 1981: Survivor must have been "channeling" that when writing Eye of the Tiger a year later. All seem to be mining Bring on the Night, recorded by the Police in 1979 - fascinating stuff. 

Thanks for the laugh, Mario - no one stays a Sixty Second Man forever!
