The song “One” by Harry Nilsson has a lyric that goes “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.” Now if you’re a normal person you might hear that and think “What the hell is that supposed to mean?” One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do? What do you mean DO? You don’t DO numbers. That doesn’t make grammatical sense. I’m pretty sure that word was shoehorned in there nonsensically just to give the line something to rhyme with “two” which is in the following lyric, “Two can be as bad as one, it’s the loneliest number since the number one.” How is two as bad as one? Two is the solution to one being a lonely number. Two means two ones, so how is that lonely? The ones are together with each other name make two… If by some chance one was lonely, I’m sure it felt a lot better once the number 11 was invented. Don’t feel bad for one. One is fine. One is hooking up with other numbers all over the place. How can you feel sad about one when there are numbers like 15, 21, 115, etc. One is going to be fine. If any number is lonely I’d say it’s 8 or 10 because seven eight nine and now it’s gone. If you don’t buy that, zero is obviously the loneliest number. I mean come on, it’s in a vacuum of nothingness. It’s so lonely some people don’t even consider it a number. That’s about as lonely as it gets.
