    Sorry, but that's not ranked. Next poster, please continue with 4.

    PS:
    "Number Two" is a ranking, 2-4-6-8 is just numbers.
    If selections 2-4-6- and 8 are incorrect then the concept may not be as clear as intended as there appears to be two separate criteria - 1.) rankings (which to me suggests "first, second, third, fourth, etc) and 2.) "looking for second, third, etc in the title".

    Under your criteria your selection of "Forth of Fifth" would be disqualified as it isn't actually a reference to a number -

    "The title is a pun on the estuary of the River Forth in Scotland, commonly known as the Firth of Forth."

    I don't see how the others fail to qualify under your criteria but it's your theme, your rules so whatever you decide is cool -

    I'm aware of the meaning of Forth of Fifth (one of my top 3 songs), but I consider this a fun variation on the theme, as it still includes Fifth, which obviously is also an indication of ranking, even if it is not in this title. Like mentioning S&G's The Boxer if the theme is dogs.

    On the other hand I see no way whatsoever how "Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa" and "2-4-6-8 Motorway" can qualify as containing numbers denoting a ranking. They are quantities (24) or counting (2-4-6-8). But enlighten me if you think otherwise.

    I totally misunderstood your post - I thought that you were saying that selections 2, 4, 6, and 8 were incorrect - I didn't get the reference to the song "2-4-6-8 Motorway" as it didn't appear on my screen at the time - there was a post crash and it didn't appear until I refreshed the screen to proof-read my post.

    The "Forth of Fifth" is indeed a clever suggestion - I used it as a reference for clarification on the theme as I couldn't understand why one was acceptable and four others were not but as mentioned above the intent of your post was misunderstood by me.
