Advert: National Lottery - Magic Number Song
Music: Three is the Magic Number - Bob Dorough
This National Lottery ad features a well covered song, originally made for a kid's show called Schoolhouse Rock! by Bob Dorough. Best known is probably De La Soul's version with their 1990 single from their album, 3 Feet High and Rising. Dorough composed many of the songs for the TV show, although he was also a bebop and cool jazz vocalist, pianist, composer, songwriter, arranger and producer. UK band Embrace also covered the song in 2000. Listen to all three versions below!
