OPEN YOUR EARS THINK OF A NUMBER From his bar stool on New Yorks Lower East Side, surrounded by a colorful crew of locals, David Klein sets out on a quest for the infinite, hidden somewhere -everywhere?- in songs featuring numbers in their titles.MoreOPEN YOUR EARS THINK OF A NUMBER From his bar stool on New Yorks Lower East Side, surrounded by a colorful crew of locals, David Klein sets out on a quest for the infinite, hidden somewhere -everywhere?- in songs featuring numbers in their titles. The book that follows is a masterful, erudite tribute to 60 years of pop music. If 6 Was 9 manages to be hilarious, geeky, seriously intellectual and heartfelt all at the same time. Revised and expanded, with a foreword by Drive-By Truckers frontman Patterson Hood, this comprehensive volume surveys number songs from zero through 99-making frequent detours across time and space along the way DAVID KLEIN spent most of his life in the vicinity of New York City. A graduate of Vassar College, he is now a journalist for the alt-weekly newspaper INDY Week, writing about music and pop culture. He lives in Chapel Hill, N.C., with his wife and two sons.
