The Pinball Number Count
Let me just take a moment to wallow in nostalgia.
Wallow. Wallow. Wallow.
I’m sorry that you had to see that, but I just stopped by the blog of whytheluckystiff and discovered that he had uncovered the history of the Pinball Number Count song!
Yes, you heard it correctly the first time. That’s the Pinball Number Count song! He has both the song, and the video, right there on his site.
This is the song (and video) that I remember most vividly from my childhood TV watching days. Watching that glittering silver ball bounce through a freak-show pinball game, with the words “one-two-three-foooour-five, six-se-ven-eight-niiiiine-ten, eleven-twelve!” echoing around me.
Those were the days. Thanks for taking me back, _why.
