Sometimes, one can only jam along to the glory that is before them:

Yes, the masterpiece that was 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12, officially titled the Pinball Number Count, debuting on Sesame Street in 1977.  Sung by none other than the Pointer Sisters (!) in a delightful funk/jazz/Caribbean melange.  Accompanied by wild visuals with fun themes.  And featuring sequence number 8 (titled Forest Follies) that ends with the best delivery of an “eight” ever recorded.

Great stuff.  It’ll be stuck in your head now* for the rest of the day, and that’s a good thing!

 

(When I used to teach at my previous job, if the class was getting a bit listless I would begin singing the tune and trail off starting around 6… never did it fail that at least a few people would carry the song all the way to 12.)
