Quote: 99
I've been waiting so long
Oh 99
Where did we go wrong
Oh 99
I love you

99
I keep breaking your heart
Oh 99
How can we be apart
Oh 99
I love you

I never thought it would happen
I feel quite the same
I don't want to hurt you anymore
I never knew it would work out
No one to blame
You know I love you 99

99
You keep holding my hand
Oh 99
They don't know who I am
Oh 99
I love you

I never thought it would happen
I feel quite the same
I don't want to hurt you anymore
I never knew it would work out
No one to blame
You know I love you 99

99
I can't take it no more
Oh 99
Oh, we were so sure
Oh 99
I love you

99
I love you
99
I love you

Even though most people think and say that this song is not about Agent 99 from the television series Get Smart I have a feeling that it actually is a youthful crush lyrically and musically admitted and expressed so beautifully (*-*)

Quote:'99' was predominantly a performance video, though the set design was rather conceptual. Following David Paich's intention regarding the lyrics, about a sterile society in which names are forgotten and love forbidden, the set was sterile white, with various sized sculptured 99's hanging and standing about, and the band was clad in futuristic white jumpsuits.

Or was there a hidden religious meaning? The 99th name of Allah?

Im drawing a blank on this one. The only thing that comes to mind today when I hear the number 99 is Bottles of Beer on the wall.

26 of which were consumed by me last night. I feel like crapola today.

Quote: Properties of the number 99 -

Symbolism -

Express a realized perfection state, since it is in relation with the number of the perfection, 9.

According to Bercelius, this number would be the equivalents of the Gold, symbol of the Pure Spirit.

Bible -

Number of ewe left in the parabola of Jesus to go to seek the hundredth that was lost. (Mt 18,12)

Age of Abraham when God appeared to him and instituted an alliance with him. (Gn 17,1)

General -

Number of grains of the Muslim rosary.

The 99 names of Allah, according to the Islamic religion: "that which will have learned them will enter to the paradise". The hundredth name is ineffable, it belongs the secret of God, as the name of YHWH, and will be revealed only to the Sky, although the elects hear it at their death.

In the Koran, chapter XXXVIII verse 22, it is written: "Surely this is my brother; he has ninety-nine ewes and I have a single ewe; but he said: Make it over to me, and he has prevailed against me in discourse."

For the Bouriates the gods are to the number of 99, divided in good and bad and distributed by areas: 55 goods in the south-west area, and 44 bad in the north-east. These two groups of gods would fight for a very long time between them. The Mongols also knew 99 "tengri", but neither Bouriates nor the Mongols can give precision on these gods, whose names are obscure and baseless.

Some books talking about the secret societies advance that the lodge F.O.G.C. (Franc-Masonic Order of the Gold Century) would be also known as being the 99th lodge. Concerning these 99 lodges, there would be disseminated in the world and each one being composed of 99 members. Each lodge would be under the domination of a demon and each member would have also his own demon. This demon helps the person to acquire money and power but, in exchange, the soul of this person is held to serve this demon after his death. Moreover, each year, a member is sacrificed to the demon of the lodge, after what a new member is admitted. The members of the 99 lodges would be also a very influential leaders in the economy and the finance and would be more present today as ever. The lodges of F.O.G.C. would be one of the worst that would exist.

Some authors estimate the death of John the evangelist to 99 years.

Among the abbreviations used in telegraphy and telephony, and which are employed universally, there is the number 99 which has for meaning "keep out".

Gematria -

The numerical values of Hebrew word HVPE meaning nuptial bed, and IDIGhE meaning knowledge or cognition, gives each one 99.

Numerical value of the word Amen written in Greek:
A M H N
1 40 8 50 = 99

Wessely showed that the acronym using the Greek letters Koppa and Theta that we find on the Christian inscriptions, Greek and Coptic, are in reality only a mystical manner to express the Amen since both have as numerical value 99.

Occurrence -

The number 99 is used 6 times in the Bible.

The number 7 is used 99 times in the NT.

The word generation is used 99 times in the OT and the word confidence, 99 times in the Bible. The word "prayer" is used 99 times in the NT of the NRSV.
