A Song For the 4th of the Month: "Four” by Miles Davis

Here's my salute to songs with numbers in them. Every day this month, I'll select a song with the number of the month in the title.

To celebrate the 4th day of the month, we have a jazz standard by one of the legends of music, “Four” by Miles Davis (1954). Although Davis is most associated with the song, it was written by saxophonist Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson. It’s since been renditioned by dozens of jazz greats and thousands (millions?) of music students learning to play in the “modern” or “cool” style.

What songs do you like with "Four" in the title? Leave ideas in the comments!
