You were right, wherever you are.

A few years ago I had argued with another avid EC about North and it's songs, but really it was an argument pertaining to me being a jackass because I told him his taste 'sucks'. I can now happily say... I couldn't have been more wrong ! He argued that the album (North) is 'like a fine wine that bec...

I can't help but notice that his clothes are not dissimilar to some I own, also that he dresses like a 17 year old lol.

Some of you guys truly are FANS, I lovveee the man and his music, but have never been. Out of curiosity, was anyone at Roy Orbison's Black & White Night ? Remarkable stuff though guys. Very interesting to just be a passer by of this awesome thread !

Re: Favorite Elvis Costello Song?

I too envy you just discovering these EC songs, my mind was damn near blown when I heard ATUB when I was 9, my favorite album ever made.

Re: I'm 12 years old and OBSESSED with Elvis Costello.

Interesting Spinning Song Book Categorys

These aren't real but I'd be interested to see what you (us) the real fans want to hear. Example 'Blue' Jackpot: Blue Chair, Color Of The Blues, Forever Blue (Chris Isaak), etc and take really interesting titles

Re: VH1 Story Tellers

Thanks for these ! But... I think I might be losing my mind, the one I was thinking of was one where he was solo and told a story of Alison, somewhere along the lines of 'You could tell that she was destined, and seemed to be her lot in life, for bad things to happen.' about some clerk he saw at his...

'So then I said that I was playing this song with Keith... I mean, Skeletor.' '... You're a dick, Elvis.' In short Keith looks very sickly.

There used to be a video on youtube where Elvis sang with Allen and his band, it was a recorded DVD and everything but he segmented into High Fidelity, but the key here is that it was possibly a DVD. HELP ! Please

Poor Deporte ! Did you just read my mind and then take those ideas and convey them PERFECTLY ? Beautifully written. P.s. I Want To Vanish is probably one of my favorite songs.

Re: Elvis/Imposters, Seattle , April 12 '12

The sound check sounds like it alone is worth the price of admission ! I love ATUB so this spells great things ahead ! Has EC ever played 'It's Time' as part of the 'Time' Jackpot ?

Re: Have you ever stopped by a record store just to see what

I feel bad now having just bought (2 days ago, and watched it all) Season 2 of Spectacle on Blu-Ray for 25 bucks. I was suprised Bronx, I hadn't a clue these deluxe editions existed, I am a little bitter on the fact that it jipped us of the final 3 songs but no complaints.

Have you ever stopped by a record store just to see what EC?

... CD's they have in ? I was surprised today when I went to my love HMV here in Calgary and they had stock of almost every EC album, even Live at the: albums. I was disappointed to find that out of all the CD's there was not a single ATUB ! However I did manage to pick up the deluxe edition of The ...

P.S. My eyes are terrible, can anyone tell me how Ron is playing this like chord wise ? Please :)

What do you believe attracts you to EC over other artist ?

Obviously we all love 'the man' but what about his music sets him apart from others, for you ?
