    What song is this?

    Could you please tell me what song it is? Or, perhaps, you could make out those several words?



    The context suggests the song might be about loneliness or betrayal by friends or something like that.

    The song is called "One is the Loneliest Number" and the words to opening line in the clip are "One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do."

    Thank you very much.

    The darn thing did know how to rub it in.

    Here's the rendition I like more than the one they used in the show.

    Ahhhh E-learner... yes, you found the original version of the song. The correct title is simply "One" and it is by Harry Nilsson.

    He talks very quickly about how he got the opening of ONE in this trailer: YouTube - Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)? - Trailer

    He did number of other songs and if you like One, you might like a cover he did of Without You...

    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Wonderful. Somewhere on the forum, I had already posted a link to a (Russian) song with a Morse code in it, and now a busy signal.
