3 is a Magic Number

di Valerio Longhi

Nessuna novità, la notizia di oggi è dedicata semplicemente a una simpatica ‘scoperta‘ rilanciata dal nostro forum.

Quello sopra, infatti, è il video della canzone originale che ha ispirato il jingle che lega indissolubilmente 3 Italia ai propri clienti. Sotto invece il primo spot di H3G: da notare come ci si sia liberamente ispirati alla canzone originale della serie televisiva Schoolhouse Rock! andata in onda a partire dagli anni ’70 negli USA.

Questo il testo della canzone originale andata in ondata, come primo video assoluto, durante la trasmissione televisiva Schoolhouse Rock!

“Three Is A Magic Number” scritta da Bob Dorough

Three is a magic number
Yes it is, it’s a magic number
Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity
You get three as a magic number
The past and the present and the future
Faith and hope and charity
The heart and the brain and the body
Give you three as a magic number

It takes three legs to make a tripod or to make a table stand
It takes three wheels to make a vehicle called a tricycle
Every triangle has three corners
Every triangle has three sides
No more, no less
You don’t have to guess
When it’s three you can see it’s a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family
And that’s a magic number

3-6-9, 12-15-18, 21-24-27, 30
3-6-9, 12-15-18, 21-24-27, 30

Now, the multiples of three
Come up three times in each set of ten
In the first ten you get 3, 6, 9
And in the “-teens” ten it’s 12, 15, and 18
And in the “twenties” you get 21, 24, 27
And it comes out even on 30

Now multiply backwards from three times ten

3 x 10 is 30
3 x 9 is 27
3 x 8 is 24
3 x 7 is 21
3 x 6 is 18
3 x 5 is 15
3 x 4 is 12
And 3 x 3 is 9
And 3 x 2 is 6
And 3 x 1 is 3 of course

Now dig the pattern once more

Three! 3-6-9
Twelve! 12-15-18
Twenty-one! 21-24-27, 30
Yeah, thirty

Now multiply from 10 backwards

3 x 10 is 30 (keep goin’)
3 x 9 is 27
3 x 8 is 24
3 x 7 is 21
3 x 6 is 18
3 x 5 is 15
3 x 4 is 12
And 3 x 3 is 9
And 3 x 2 is 6
And 3 x 1… What is it?
Three!
Yeah…
That’s a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family
That’s a magic number
