From A to Z, in the 80s Alphabet (Part 25) - "Y"

Y- As I had explained way back, Y was not even in the alphabet back in the 80's 90's. So... The youngest portuguse Y band is Yellow W Van, from 99. This is from their first CD (in 2002), Mundo Perfeito, aka Perfect World: Funkfumaça somethin like “smoked funk” :

One more and done!
