Re: Elvis/Imposters, Symphony Hall Birmingham, 15 May 2012

Has the meaning of "Cilla" been explained yet? It hasn't been spun yet, so we don't know for sure. It's in the spot which used to be home to "I've Been Wrong Before," which Cilla Black recorded, so my guess is it's not really anything new. Elvis mentioned Cilla Black in Manchest...

(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes Everyday I Write The Book She Alison / In Another Room He seemed to race through these, almost tripping over the lyrics in She.
