An album, Adventures of Stevie V followed, with a further two singles reaching the charts – “Body Language”. After the demise of The Adventures of Stevie V, Walsh went on to have a US dance hit with “Set Me Free” by Clubland, having moved to New York City.

The Dollar Sign – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a dollar sign. The dollar sign, also known as peso sign, is a symbol consisting of a capital “S” crossed with one or two vertical strokes ($ or ), used to indicate the unit of various currencies around the world, including most currencies denominated “peso” and “dollar”. The one- and two-stroke version are often considered mere stylistic (typeface) variants, although in some places and epochs one of them may have been specifically assigned, by law or custom, to a specific currency. The Unicode computer encoding standard defines a single code for both.In most English-speaking countries that use that symbol, it is placed to the left of the amount specified, e.g. “$1”, read as “one dollar”.
