There are now only 186 songs registered at ASCAP, in stead of 654 a few weeks ago.
The remaining songs are mostly post "Secret, Profane and Sugarcane" (including the unreleased musical songs).

The ASCAP songs are now divided between Costello & MacManus so you now need 2 searches instead of one.

I tried that, but ASCAP doesn't seem to know "our" MacManus ?!

It should work if you search for "Mac-Manus".

Google translate says -

'Goodbye Paris (Star Wars)' .

Something for the next film in that franchise?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on Dec. 17th 2017

For those with the vaguest of interest in the "Star Wars Saga" , I can confirm that the last forum meetup at the Roundhouse gig in London did indeed provide more than a passing resemblance to the "Cantina Scene" in SW4 A New Hope, featuring Verbal as Hans Solo ! :wink:

No way - they never have songs in the Star Wars films. How cool would it be, though! Bond film is never gonna happen unless someone else sings it. Emily Sande expressed an interest recently.

Suzanne on Facebook comments -

Not a correct translation. I believe "guerres" is the French word for "war." It is "Envy the Stars."
