As you know, A E I O and U are vowels (and Y can be used as a vowel). I have noticed a few songs with all 5 main vowels in the titles. Some examples are

Green Tambourine ~ the Lemonpipers
Put Yourself in My Place ~ the Elgins
Imagine Me, Imagine You ~ Fox
The Only Way is Up ~ Yazz & the Plastic Population

Feel free to mention any you can think of, thanks!

I would think this is probably the shortest title which uses the five main vowels. I've found two with 12 letters in the title, but this one has only 10. (And the vowels are almost in alphabetical order too!)

5 points to Nellie !!


Beautiful Ones - Suede

Quite a few titles with the word 'Beautiful' in it will qualify here.

(in best 'St Trinian's headmistress voice) Were you never told at school 'nobody loves a smart ar$e, Terrence?'
Though all I did was go through the tunes on my computer, so I didn't use google either!

Now trying to get third prize for songs with 12 letters:

Running alone - Steve Perry
Soul searchin' - Glenn Frey

(though as Tel's song knowledge is so vast, I'll be lucky if they make the top 10.
In all honesty, I am in complete awe of where you get some of the titles and artists you list, Tel. )

Sadly Scraggy you won't need to 'do a Cilla' and buy a hat - it's all off! Tel found a song called 'Facetious' which I looked for but couldn't find, as that has all the vowels in alpha order. (Though Tel and Nel does have a certain ring to it! )
So now its's

Scraggy Cilla says 'Awww chuck !!' Oh well, 'Tel and Nel' did have a certain ring to it though.
