Day two is: a song you like with a number in the title, and it turns out that I have quite a few number songs in my collection but not that many I actively like. I mean, I don't usually keep songs I hate around, but looking through the number ones I'm mostly feeling neutral, they're ok, they're lesser songs by artists I like, that sort of thing.

So I settled on Mambo No. 5 by Lou Bega. This was a hit the summer I was doing a science summer school in Israel, and falling in love with p53 and molecular biology research. And the summer one of my best friends became a father, about ten years earlier than most of the rest of my peers. This song was the first music that my friend's baby son unmistakably recognized and seemed to enjoy. We used to joke that he liked it because he recognized his mother's name in the list of women, but I don't know if that's actually plausible, I was already bowled over to learn that a very young baby could express distinct musical preferences. (Baby is now at university, because there are actual adults half my age, which is why lots of my music choices won't be exactly up-to-date.)

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
