You have to do another quiz some day, maybe with more "research" before!  ;)

I think that there will be more chance of England winning the world cup this year than me doing another quiz. Research or not Uli. Cwltch.

1)  What are the top 3 songs that TV has played?


Ok, so that's a easy one.. they get harder..


2)  How many countries has TV played in?


3)  How many gigs has TV played?


4)  How many songs has TV sung?  This does not include "soundchecks" as they are not listed (see I am covering all possible arguments!)


5)  There are 8 "covers" on the list, I could be nasty and ask you to name them.   oh sod-it..  name them?


6)  There are 2 songs listed, but they are neither songs nor "spoken word" (so 1 is not Punk Rock Poem) any idea?


7)  How may different TV songs are listed?


Ok then, lets see how you get on, there are of course no prizes (apart from a worn out pencil, but that's another story)

1. GGE, BT, OCW
2. 25
3. 3,600
4. 30,000
5. Power In The Darkness, Babylon's Burning, erm...
6. No idea?!
7. 195

Think I may be too late to claim my worn pencil.

May, other than  #1, be slightly incorrect!  ;)



1 point for the top 3 played.

Could've sworn TV covered 'Babylon's Burning' for the Paul Fox gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire. Am I imagining things?

It may well have been played, but didn't make the setlist...

Good old Alan: still bringing us quality  :)

Actually...I'm more than a little disappointed that I didn't remember 'Identity' being covered!

Memory ain't what it used to...something

That's a shame, it was a lot of fun for the three active users of this forum...

Three?

I'm sure it's less than that!  ;)

@slaughterboy: I must look into the members list, maybe I can find out via "last online" how many have been looking in here recently...

Identity was done at Simse's in Paderborn...

And at many more gigs! (How many? - See, could be a quiz question!)

@slaughterboy: I can't view how many "members" were online when, I just can see who's online now.
At least the forum gives this info: Most Online Today: 59
Which seems a lot. Okay, there's a few spambots, but I know for a fact there are "read only" fans as well (hello to Switzerland)!

Sung by TV 21 times up to the end of 2017 according to the Setlists.

Seems like the quiz question was too easy for you!  ;)

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.)

Identity was played by TV at Rebellion a few years ago

The list that is on Wiki is only up to 2014 and it contains 1 entry 147 & 148 which are the same song, so the list only has 234 songs.  29 of which have not appeared on setlists.

From the setlists, Tim has given us 235 original songs, and 9 covers.

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.

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