Was this grid made for the enjoyment of others, or to make you feel clever MikeD? For a predominantly UK audience there are 2 lines that are virtually unsolvable. Even the only attainable line is flawed, and the Soup line is so obscure you offer proof should it be required - which you obviously think it will be!
Not sour grapes because I totally failed, (I have done hundreds if not thousands of these grids quite successfully) just an observation of a silly and unenjoyable puzzle.

I see where Horatio is coming from, but I think a bit harsh. The grids are supposed to be about fun and are available across the planet. Just because the majority here are from the UK does not detract those submitted from elsewhere. If one only wants their own, then select their own, easy. Now about your grid - not too difficult to solve the wall even without knowing exactly what each clue is, I got two lines easy and 3 of the links. On the 'soup' line, I understand where you are coming from about "proof" if needed. The only Boca Chica I know is in Dominican Republic, Crack on MikeD set us some more! And P.S. sorry to rain on your comments Horatio Gouais

A big fat zero for me! A bit miffed that 'places in the US' was not specific enough to garner me a point. But I learned something, so that's good :)

Living in Australia, I often do much better with UK puzzles because of the cultural, language, historical etc similarity. I never manage to do very well on American ones for the same reason. So I am happy with 4/10. However, it doesn't hurt us to be challenged with some differences. Some people devise puzzles to be as deliberately obscure and difficult as possible. Others just come with different experiences. Room for all. Cheers

Thanks for all the wonderful comments and encouragement. Here’s the proof for the song titles. I know it’s a long list, but you can find them all on there: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/JammyD/title_tracks_that_arent_on_the_album_they_title/

I echo j's comment- variety is the spice of puzzgrid- I did struggle but I don't think Geographical knowledge can be called specialist, and I've done a lot of very UK culture- based grids so it would be hypocritical of me to criticise one for being US- centric. The important thing is that the site is here for everybody! The songs facts were very interesting :)
