Re: Wanna know what's kind of weird? "North" songs reversed

That DOES sound nice.

The Beatles' Sun King backwards on the Love album is beautiful too.

If so, I couldn't agree more. That was actually one of an elite few recordings responsible for me becoming a Costello nut.



I believe I have it on the Goodbye Cruel World Rhino bonus disc. Is it the same version?

Re: "Goodbye Cruel World" Redux

Out of NOWHERE, I listened to the acoustic demo of The Comedians tonight about 30 times.

I've never been afraid of heights, but Elvis Costello amazingly lays out this imagery of my life's ill-defined (and probably unwarranted) fears.

Just crushing and amazing. A perfect song.

I put "That's Not the Part of Him You're Leaving" on the jukebox at The Corner Bar a couple of weeks ago. Nobody was expecting it, and nobody liked it. :(

Re: National Ransom - New Album Due Nov. 2

My favorite song so far is "That's not the part of him you're leaving". Unfortunately, I think it's because it sounds like it would have fit on The Delivery Man. Fortunately, it seems like some of the other songs are finally growing on me. Soon they all will...I Hope.

Re: Beatles remasters

So HOW much better are they?? Does the reissue of "Let It Be" sound better than "Let It Be...Naked?" Is there a big difference in sound quality between these and "1" and "The Yellow Submarine Songtrack"? Should I really ask for one of the Box Sets for Christma...

Re: Do you have a fave Beatles album?

I love nearly every song the same, but, to answer this question, I'll say: Rubber Soul. My 3-year-old's favorite by far, is the Yellow Submarine Songtrack. He can sing along with all the songs, but he counts as high as he can during "When I'm 64", like he does with the movie. Love this kid.

Femme Fatale

I don't know if this has been discussed yet, but I LOVE Femme Fatale.

It's probably my favorite song on the new album. It's just perfect. How is everyone else liking it?
