Das ist ganz einfach, zieh die veröffentlichen Songs, die er für die Toten Hosen in die deutsche Sprache übersetzt hat (Album Crash Landing) aus der Wikiliste ab und addiere andererseits alle Coverversionen, dann müsste die Zahl übereinstimmen.

Nicht ganz, es gibt ja außer den Coverversionen ein paar wenige unveröffentlichte Lieder. Und die neuen vom kommenden Album (2018).
Aber das macht nix, wie gesagt sind die Zahlen nah beieinander, d.h. er hat fast alle für uns gespielt.  :)

Guess I will get this book at some point in time:

The serene Mr. Lynch is clearly no pushover, though: “I remember an executive taking a list of notes out of his pocket and saying, ‘I’ve got some notes if you’re interested,’” recalls one associate about the making of Twin Peaks. “And David said, ‘No, not really,’ and the guy quietly put the list back in his pocket….”

The Rolling Stones: How Eel Pie Island shaped the band's career

The Rolling Stones' return to Twickenham on 19 June is more than just another tour date - it's a rock 'n' roll pilgrimage five decades in the making.

Back in 1963, exactly 55 years ago to the day, the young band took to the stage just a short walk away from Twickenham Stadium, as part of their five-month residency at the Eel Pie Island Hotel - one of the birthplaces of the '60s revolution.

Lovely interview with Stuart from Mogwai (and a new track from upcoming soundtrack):
“Probably the Scottish weather. That’s probably where it comes from. Either that or the failures of the Scottish football team.” Guitarist Stuart Braithwaite is chuckling to himself as he explains why his band Mogwai make such mournful music. “Those are probably the main sources of sadness in Scotland.”

The band are currently working on a soundtrack for a secret TV project and will be releasing the score for upcoming sci-fi film KIN next month. Mogwai’s music has been largely lyric-free over the years, although they occasionally bring in a guest vocalist like Aidan Moffat and Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals and sometimes have a go at singing themselves.

There is one musician in particular they’re dying to work with. “Iggy Pop would be great. That’s definitely someone I’d like to get. He’s just a really passionate singer and has a really unique voice and great energy.”

I'm for England now... not really, but I did watch the match (in parts) and it wasn't too bad.
(Well I admit I lost interest after 20 mins or so...)

Instead of watching the footie, you could also listen to The Damned in session on BBC6Music! (Or just mute the telly and turn on the radio.)
Your eyes are not deceiving you we have yer actual The Damned in session from Salford, and Marc could not be more excited.

The list that is on Wiki is only up to 2014

That is only logical, as it is a list of "released songs".
Might change this year though (did I hear anyone say "new album"?)...

...the list only has 234 songs. 
From the setlists, Tim has given us 235 original songs...

As I'd said, the numbers are pretty close to each other.  8)

Would he be disappointed if he never made another album? “I would now, yeah. Because I’ve committed myself to going into the studio and creating songs for the band, which I haven’t done for 10 years. Meltdown has inspired me to do something new because I’m listening to new bands. I’m enthused by their enthusiasm. So if it doesn’t work, I’ll be pretty upset, because it will mean that the songs aren’t good enough.”

How has his outlook changed? “It’s slightly more cynical and slightly less optimistic, which is strange. I was very optimistic when I was young, even though I wrote very dismal songs, but now I’m kind of the opposite. I have a very dismal outlook on life.”

Does it feel weird doing something like this solo, not as The Cure?
'I’ve never done anything this public where it’s just me. It wasn’t how I intended it at all – it was going to be The Cure’s Meltdown. But this big Hyde Park show came up at the same time and they were very iffy about exclusivity, so it became my Meltdown. It’s actually a good thing, because it would have been utterly impractical to have a five-piece curating a festival. We can’t even agree what to listen to on a tour bus.’

A lot of the bands you’ve picked are from the same sort of era and genre. Was that deliberate?
'I wasn’t trying to be everything to everyone. I listen to loads of stuff, and none of it’s suitable for Meltdown – if I started to bring it all in, it’d be a right hotch-potch. So I limited it to bands that were really great live bands. I’ve always been drawn to more emotional music, and they all wear their hearts on their sleeve.’

not as funny as Germany leaving the brilliant Leroy Sane behind though

Well, I can only imagine that Mr Loew has a team in mind which does "harmonize", so maybe he thought the guy did not fit in for some reason...
I do recall the moaning before the last World Cup ("he's doing it all wrong" etc., strangely they fell silent afterwards).  ::)

Ich weiß nicht wieviele Songs Tim für uns je für uns gesungen hat, aber wieviele jemals veröffentlicht wurden.  :)

Hey, danke, coole Liste! Die Zahl ist ja sehr nah dran an der Anzahl der Lieder die er gespielt hat. Also hat er fast alle seine Lieder für uns gespielt. (Ok, ein paar Cover und ein paar wenige "unveröffentlichte" Songs waren wohl dabei.)

(This list does suggest that TV played nearly all of his released songs for us. Ok, there were a few covers and some unreleased songs he played, but... wow.)

You know when you’ve just got a lot of stuff going on around you that you don’t really like very much and none of it is good news? But there was always one thing I could do which was mess around with music and try and make up a tune and feel good about that. So that’s where that title came from. I also just kinda liked the idea of a PHD, the supposition that you’re talking about your education and your education consists of those three things. *laughs*

I spend quite a lot of time in Phoenix Arizona and Area 51 isn’t far away and you have those big clear desert skies. Nearly everyone that lives in that town sees stuff that doesn’t really have an explanation. There was one time I sitting in the living room of the place I was staying… see the trouble with this stuff is if you tell people what happened it sounds like you’re a fucking nutcase *laughs*   But I swear I was with the guitar player of the band I was staying with at the time and this small black sphere the size of a squash ball floated down the stairs at quite high speed, buzzed around the kitchen damaging everything and then back out up the stairs and away again at high speed. It was one of those things that was such an outrageous event that we were both pretty gobsmacked about whether it had even happened. If it hadn’t been for the fact that the two us had seen the same thing you’d put it down to some kind of marijuana induced incident *laughs* So that was one of the strangest things that happened. I never reported it or anything like that but out there’s a lot of stuff buzzing around out there out in the sky that’s a mystery.

So I had this whole broad left field influence when I was growing up and a part of that was things like Atlantis and the Holy Grail and all these legends. Where do they come from? What is it based on and is there any element of truth in any of these stories? And if there is, can you find it? So that’s kind of how I am with the whole thing, I find it quite fascinating and I’ve witnessed enough strange small events that it makes you go ‘well that was weird, I think there’s something going on here that I don’t really have a name for or an understanding of’ but at the same time I’m very rational about it. I don’t ‘believe’ in things like ghosts or fairies but I like to observe it and see if it’s proven to me.

I remember Rat telling me the Arizona story and closed with "you don't believe me, huh?".  ;D
