Fix one bug,
compile it again,
101 little bugs in my code.
continue until bugs=0

I can only think of the old Beatles song:

“One is the loneliest number…”

All Together Now by The Beatles

Nothing like morbid children’s songs.

@windex: None of the above. I’m an atmospheric science grad student who knows only enough coding to get me by. And I am actually a pretty good de-bugger, I just love that song. ;-)

@Nimis—I always thought that song was a nifty way to teach evolution.

Poser: Darwin Awards for all the little monkeys?

@ buster – excellent choice as well !!! as a young kid I always wanted to play that pinball. Then when I got older I thought, that wouldnt really work.

My immediate thought in response to this question was the counting trick for multiples of 4 to the tune of Row Row Row Your Boat.

When I was a kid (14?) I enjoyed this one

There were four in the bed and the little one said “roll over, roll over,” so they all rolled over and one fell out. There were three in the bed and the little one said “roll over, roll over…” Etc., etc, until there is one in the bed and the little one says “good night.”

My second favorite would have to be Three is the Magic Number. Does it count as a counting song if there is only one number?

JackAdams's avatar

All I know is that, if you utter the word, “One,” you have started counting.

EmpressPixie's avatar

I really liked Feist on Sesame Street. She only gets to “four” because its a parody of her ridiculously famous song One, Two, Three, Four but it’s super cute.

EmpressPixie's avatar

@SuperMouse: Three is the Magic Number TOTALLY counts. It teaches counting by threes, otherwise known as multiplication!

Jack, in that case, One by Creed counts (no pun intended).
