I have exactly 38 songs that begin with the letter V. No more than four of them start with the same word (“voice” or “voices”), so I’m just going to pick ten V songs that appeal to me and call it a day.
1. Van Diemen’s Land – U2
2. The Vatican Rag – Ton Lehrer
3. Vehicle – Ides of March
4. Very Fine Funeral – Eddie From Ohio
5. Veteran of the Psychic Wars – Blue Oyster Cult
6. Video Killed The Radio Star – The Buggles
7. Village Green Preservation Society – Kate Rusby
8. Voices Carry – Til Tuesday
9. Volkswagon Thing – Asylum Street Spankers
10. Vx Fx Dx – Michelle Shocked
What V songs do you have?
Entire song list report: Started with “Giving It All Away”, by Roger Daltry. Ended with “Grunge Song”, by the Austin Lounge Lizards, song #1816, for 131 songs this week.
Ripping vinyl report: Just one since last time, “Songs For Tomorrow Morning”, by The Bobs. Thanks to the vinyl I ripped last week, I now have exactly ten different songs that start with the word “Under” – “Under The Sun”, by Southside Johnny and The Jukes, is #10 – so if I’d gotten around to doing this sooner, I wouldn’t have had to fudge the April 16 entry. Let that be a lesson to me. For my penance, here’s a video of the “Underdog” theme song:
Sadly, I couldn’t find a clip that included “Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird” “A plane!” “A frog!” “A frog?” “Not bird, not plane, not even frog, just little old me, Underdog.” I hope you’ll forgive me.
