Seeing as She's Pulling Out the Pin doesn't seem to have made it to The Delivery Man, and so I'm not expecting to hear it any time soon - does anyone happen to have the lyrics to this gem? (Yeah, I was there to hear it on night 3 at Avery Fisher, but memory's shady, ya know...)

Tart - certainly the highlight of WIWC; and catchy, too - that's never hurt in the singles game...

Ha! It does have that Chevy look to it now, doesn't it....

Though hey, it could have been worse (Il Sogno?!)

As far as I'm concerned, nothing can beat the WIWC bees, baby!

Re: Here they are: EC's Journal entries (LONG)

Oooo...goody! Merci beaucoup for posting these (and having had the good sense to save them back in the day) Was highly amused by the bit on US security, having had a similarly unnerving expereince recently. These certainly wet one's appetite for those EC books coming out - when is it - around fall 2...

Does anybody know if EC's old journal entries from the official site are still archived somewhere on the WWW?

Well, I was lucky enough to be there...

EC was in his crooner mode - sans guitar to my great disappointment - came out to join Diana for Almost Blue, and sang Ray Charles' Drown In My Own Tears as one of the encores. Ron Sexmith also joined Diana for a duet of his Secret Heart. Was absoultely rockin' show, with plenty of high-energy, intr...

Come to think of it, if one really tried, one could probably cut and paste a musical with the wealth of EC material that's already out there. Yeah, so there'd be plot ...

It's de-lovely!

Here's an EC quote from the De-Lovely site : "In doing my part, I think it's the first time I've ever worn a white jacket in my life, and I couldn't see a damn thing because I wore glasses that had period lenses in them. But it was like a dream to me up there. It was a joy to do one of Porter's more...

The Elvis Costello Songbook

Just got a rockin' CD in the mail. Bonnie Brett - The Elvis Costello Songbook If you like your Elvis served up in the jazz quartet format (Diana notwithstanding), this is worth the coin. Some nice covers here, though I'm not too sure re. the bossa-nova-ish I Want You. Anyhoo, you can get it at the J...

A question for all you peeps in the know...

...Is there a place somwhere in the big 'n' scary WWW universe where one can read a transcript of EC hosting Letterman? Mind you, a clip would be preferable, but I'll take what I can get.
(Am TV-less and so tend to miss out on these things.)
