Do i need this field to be a "number" Type field?

I have a field where i want to track something like a Track # of each song.

Does this type of data need a “Number” Type field?

Or a “Number” Type is only for situations where you wanna do some calculations down the road with it?

In my situation i need it basically for ranking purposes, should i use a “Number” Type for this?

If you’re ranking it, I would use a number and then you can use the sort function to order them properly!
