My newest compulsive music playlist is by the numbers.. finding the best song with each corresponding track number in the title.

1. Daft Punk – “One More Time”
Also “One Day” by Bjork and “One Day” by Nobukazu Takemura, “Only Got One” by Frou Frou, and “One More Robot” by The Flaming Lips
2. J Dilla – “Two Can Win”
Also, Grizzly Bear – “Two Weeks,” The Guesstimates “Two Snakes On A Plane” and The Magnetic Fields – “Two Characters In Search Of A Country Song”
3. Momus – “3D Corporation”
Also, eels – “3 Speed,” The KLF – “3AM Eternal,” and They Might Be Giants – “Number Three”

Also, Sufjan Stevens – “Seven Swans,” The Clash – “The Magnificent Seven,” and Tarwater – “Seven Ways To Fake A Perfect Skin”
8. The closest thing I could find was Jai Paul’s “Str8 Outta Mumbai” which doesn’t really count. Someone find a song with eight in the title!
9. Aesop Rock – “9-5ers Anthem”
Also, Public Enemy – “911 Is A Joke,”
10. Jaill – “Ten Teardrops”
Also, Jaill – “Perfect Ten.” Weird, that.
11. Thao & Mirah - "Eleven"
Also, The Spinto Band - "Eleven, and" Primus - "Eleven"
12. Allan Sherman - "The Twelve Gifts of Christmas"
13. Big Star - "Thirteen"
Also, Manu Chao - "13 Dias"
14. TISM – “If You’re Not Famous At Fourteen”
Also, Aphex Twin - "Avril 14th"
15. Slim Cessna's Auto Club - "Fifteen Years"
16. Jack White - "Sixteen Saltines"
17. Broken Social Scene – “Anthems For A Seventeen-Year-Old Girl”

Also, Polysics - "MS-17"

Okay, there's 22 silent tracks on there I guess, but whatever. Any other suggestions?

I can mostly think of Ones--"One is the Loneliest Number" by Three Dog Night, better when covered by Aimee Mann; "No. 1 Party Song" by Arctic Monkeys, "One More Night" by Stars.

I guess there's also "2+2=5" by Radiohead, for either 2 or 5. Oh, and Elliot Smith's "Waltz #2."

For #8, there's always R.E.M's "Driver 8"

And if you want to add 21, Jack White's "Freedom at 21"

I noticed a lot more songs with 1 in the title than anything else. I can’t believe I missed the Aimee Mann “One” but I was just going by my own iTunes library, and I guess I don’t have it.

Also from REM, if you have enough tracks, “Star 69.”
