Re: 50 Songs For 50 Days - Elvis Costello's October Surprise

I quite like Spotify actually. It was good for parties back in the days when we could gather.
It’s a shame When I Was Cruel is missing for some reason.

Re: John Oliver on what Coronavirus has done to Liverpool F.C.

Sulky, tempted as I am to your solution - much more than the likely outcome - I feel it's too simplistic approach. Clearly to be awarded the big prize there needs to be a range of factors taken into consideration. I truly believe that any club which can satisfy all these tests truly deserves to be ...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Eventim Olympia, Liverpool, February 28, 2020

That set list isn’t right I’m sure. Getting Mighty Crowded was much later and he definitely sang Flutter and Wow.
Hopefully someone (Sulky maybe) took notes?

Some missing off that list. Getting Mighty Crowded :D Unwanted Number Mr and Mrs Hush Flutter and Wow Great to see everyone. Quick thoughts. Elvis really struggles with some songs now.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

It seems like Elvis has to actually appear on shows to get his records played - Radios 4, 5 and 6 recently and BBC Radios 2 and Manchester today.

At least it is album of the day on Radio 6.

Look Now is currently number 4 in the Amazon UK CD and Vinyl album chart.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Looks like radio 2 has missed out on making Elvis album of the week again. That honour goes to Jess Glynne. I personally love the album I think its his best record in years Radio 2 aren't playing any new Elvis songs at all - Unwanted Number was played 3 times a few weeks ago. I think he must have u...

Re: EC at Barnes & Noble Union Square, NYC, Oct. 12, 2018- cancelled

Sad. I lost my dad at 15 (‘84) and my mother passed away on 8/25/18. I’m devastated. On top of that, My mother’s sister (Aunt) just passed this week. And if not to feel lower than ever, my employer issued me a PIP one month after my mother’s death. My life is in a bad state now. Thank goodness I’ll...
