Music: Three Is The Magic Number - Bob Dorough
Some might recognise part of this song from The Magic Number" by De La Soul,released in 1990. The original song was from the children's show Schoolhouse Rock!, written by Bob Dorough. Dorough was a jazz musician who was able to make a song out pretty much anything. He created 'Three is a magic number' for a children's TV show and pulled off a decent song which put the three times table into a context. ‘A man and a woman had a little baby,’ ‘It takes three legs to make a table stand,’ and lines etc. He delivered a lot of information before he started in with ‘two times three is six, three times three is nine.’
