    it's easy to recite it without singing it..just remove the melody.

    I found it trickier to learn the reverse alphabet without a tune. With it, its not too bad! Although ultimately, quite pointless.

    I always say it all strung together like that, and I have since I was a small child reciting the alphabet.

    I don't know why the order is so critical, aside from cases where you need base-36 numbers and alphabetization, which seem to be side effects of the order rather than sources of the order.

    No troubles reciting it here, and I can even do logical operations on groups of random letters.

    Why is this is in the fluff section. English language alphabet is very important!

    Personally I learned my alphabet with the singing but I can recite it as well without the song now
    On a side note, don't know why this reminds me of that but quite funnily enough, I remember the first time I counted more than to five (I was like three years old at the time, I think) was when I played a War card game with my brother and my sister and I had fourteen cards and everyone got so proud of me because I could count to fourteen
    Guess that was easier times lol
