I have never had the opportunity to listen to the cover of Tangled up in blue. I have tried to search for it on the Internet but it seems practically impossible to find this song. Could anyone please hang this song on a free space (with bad sound or whatever) or give some valid link to download it? ...

Re: Tickets Anyone?

Anybody know where tickets are being sold for this show? I've seen the gig advertised on the teatro cervantes website, the link for tickets takes you to the corte ingles website but there only the madrid (Villalba ) show seems to be listed.. I notice you´re posting from Spain (or so), therefore yo...

I have spent this whole day listening and relistening The River in Reverse -to go "preparing" myself, as idiot as it can sound- and, Ok, I have to admit it´s not that boring (even when more than a few musical parts of a lot of songs sound very much to previous Costello´s songs). It´s no...

Thank you, Otis!

To be honest, I would have preferred a RNR Show, with the usual suspects around him playing loud as hell (the place is somehow in the middle of nowhere, it´s just a little beach next to an absolutely awful concrete factory and the coastal highway). Anyway, I guess I have enough time to listen and r...

Málaga, Playa del Penón del Cuervo 14/07/07

Hi folks! I´m going to be there, in Málaga (Peñón del Cuervo -The Raven´s Mull, if you don´t speak Spanish-) on July 14th. I promise to include some brief chronicle of the event and maybe -hope to- some photographs. The point is I have no idea what I´m going to find. I mean: is the list of so...

Adding just to say that I actually read the site had been "hijacked" ( http://www.elviscostellofans.com/phpBB2 ... php?t=5715 ), but no news about further events.

Now it doesn´t work.
Definitely out of order?

Listening to Back on my feet this afternoon I´ve had the clear (but maybe wrong) intuition that it´s quite easy to distinguish which part was composed by each one of them (the chorus is McCartney´s and the rest is Costello´s). And what´s more, if you pay attention to the first line of the song you´l...

I´ve just downloaded From head to toe, by The Escorts, and I have discovered how respectul EC is in this case with the original version.

Hey, LaughingCrow: do you know if that CD of originals would be available on Amazon or some of this big trading sites?

"Such unlikely covers"

What is in your opinion the best cover EC makes within that series of CDs called "Such unlikely covers"? I have to confess I feel some weakness for the ABBA "Knowing me knowing you"´s cover, introducig Hammond organ and more powerful electric guitars. I really love ABBA and I have always read Costel...

I read Paul McCArtney (I am also a BEatles fanatic) explaining that -maybe in his times, maybe never- it was a liverpoolian joke to talk about fingers and "sexual female organ", so that´s why they include that twink in Penny Lane. Beatles loved to include dirty jokes in the songs, you know ( tit tit...

My English is lousy and I´m not an English-speaking native, but I have always thought the "fishfinger king" had something to do with the liverpoolian expression "fish and finger (pie)" (like the one from Penny Lane). You know what it means. And the one about the buses MAYBE means that "there is a lo...
