Mandatory Music: you must squint your eyes and look closer while reading this post. Go on, press the button.
Eight day of the fourth month: 32. This number shows up in more musical contexts than you might think. Consider this brief sampling, courtesy of the good people of Wikipedia:

  • The number of completed, numbered piano sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven
  • In the title and lyrics of the song “32 Footsteps” by They Might Be Giants
  • The lyrics of Regina Spektor’s song “Oedipus” include the line “32 is still a god damn number”.
  • In the title of the song “The Chamber of 32 Doors” by Genesis, from their 1974 concept album The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
  • The title of “32”, a song on Mr. Mister’s debut album I Wear the Face
  • The number of rays in the Japanese Rising Sun on the cover of Incubus’ 2006 album Light Grenades
  • The title of “32 Ways To Die”, a song on Sum41’s album Half Hour of Power
  • The shortened pseudonym of UK rapper Wretch 32
