Written By: FaultyDog on 11/28/05 at 3:33 pm

Yes, it's finally there... the first of the three remaining episodes of this series. Next up is Doc with W&X and I'll be finishing off with Y&Z. But until that time, here's the U & V songs you've been waiting for. As usual, limit = 4.

Good luck everyone! :)

Mostly taken from what I can work out, but here's...

#17. 'U.S. Male' - Elvis Presley

#11 Underpass - John Foxx
#20 Victims - Culture Club

...and of course the correct artist for #12 must be Ultravox?

Great quiz Henk, I think the rapidity with which these have been guessed indicates the popularity of this format!

Three out of four - not a bad start. #2 is incorrect, I'm afraid; looking for another song and another artist.
You're correct on the artist for #15, and as for #19... I was of course  looking for Shocking Blue. ;)

Let's see... #20 is correct. #11 is also correct on the title; any suggestions for an artist (male UK singer, in business since late 60s, if that helps)...? ???
As for #7: you're partially right, but you're missing on the "airborne" aspect.

Ooh...(spots potential open goal...)

How about #7. 'Voices In The Sky' - Moody Blues

You're thinking in the right direction...but it's not the song I'm looking for. Actually, there's a thread on the boards somewhere (or at least there used to be) dedicated to some specific garments of this artist. ;)
