Thanks guys! This week we dig a forgotten trinket out from the recesses of Elvis's circa '91 beard:

Re: EC song of the week

Thank you all again for your feedback, we are really glad people are enjoying these! The "Song to Rose" pick was Jorge's -- it'll be my pick this week (though I say "week" loosely, as we've found we're a bit on rock and roll time with these posts). Anyway, very happy for the comm...

Re: EC song of the week

Thank you guys so much for reading, and for the kind words! Really enjoy reading these responses and reminiscences -- especially from some folks who experienced these albums the first time around! We should have a new entry up soon.

Re: EC song of the week

We're back! We have also moved to Wordpress, in case you'd like to have it out with us in the comments section.

Today, Jorge and I take on a song from an album we both adore:

EC song of the week

Hi all, I haven't been around much but I wanted to share a new project that I am taking on with another member of the community here (who also hasn't been around much, but hey). I am sure you all were aware of the Trunkworthy song of the week column that ran for about a year semi-recently. Now that ...

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

They're all three good, and they all fit in perfectly with the rest of the songs. "Puppet" rises to another level I think, though.

I absolutely adore "Puppet," as much as anything on the album itself. What a beautiful song.

I love this song, probably my favorite EC soundtrack tune since "Let's Misbehave."

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

Speaking for myself, I would not be able to tell you if Costello is being original or derivative. I have a fair amount of “classical music” in my collection, but I wouldn’t claim to have any expertise beyond what my own ears respond to. While I won’t pretend that this is a piece I return to often, ...

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

Knowing "North" was coming up today, I spent some of yesterday brainstorming what I wanted to say about it, only to come in this morning to find that Connor pretty much articulated my feelings on it 100%. This is one of my truly favorite Costello records, and in my mind one of the finest t...
