    Spelling & Counting Survivor



    HEY KIDS, SPELLING IS FUN!

    So..... Fun little idea for a survivor, did a little research, came up with about 40 'spelling' (songs that feature spelling out things in the lyrics, or a couple using phonetics or spelling out acronyms) and around 20 'counting' (sequential runs, countdowns, steps etc). I totally have left things out (as with these types of survivors there's so many options so we have to cut off at some point), but opening it up to you all for some nominations if you want to add anything before we get started.

    so, Add up to 3 nominations for either category and well discuss and finish up the list to get started.

                          Ok Nominations closed Have a nice rounded 120 (79 Spelling, 41 counting, some are both)... I found more links of lists (like so: https://www.songfacts.com/category/s...-in-the-lyrics) and thought up some more but we'd be here all day if we dont close it off.
