Has anyone else noticed that some recent TV/Netflix shows have used Ultravox songs?
Vienna is in “13 Reasons why” and yesterday I suddenly recognized Rockwrok in “Sex education”. It had been such a long time since I last listened to Foxx-era Ultravox, now I can’t seem to turn it off :-)
For those who want to check it, without having to watch the whole seasons: both times the songs are used in the season finale of the first season.

Wow! The use of Vienna is a pleasant surprise but ROckWrok is more of a pleasant shock (or should I say SHockShok?) Someone involved in the show must be a fan. I love both incarnations/eras of Ultravox and am glad to hear of this. smile

American Crime Story - The Assassination of Versace used Vienna is a pretty impressive way and one of my favourites Ashes to Ashes a few years ago used Vienna twice. The first scene when Alex wakes up on a party boat and later on when Gene Hunt saves Alex by shooting through a glass door which went fabulously well. Always wondered if it would have been a good quiz question - Which song did Ashes to Ashes use twice?!

I believe a TV show called The Americans also used Vienna.
