Elvis would appear to be in the U.K. , going by this tweet this afternoon, so he may have been at the U2 show. (edit - he was, as earlier posts I missed now tell me)

That is quite cool!

I was at the MetLife show last month and it was wonderful. Tremendous experience, both musically and visually.

Picture sent to me by a friend at last night's friendly between Tranmere Rovers v Liverpool. Was supposed to have been going myself, but something came up, devastated.

Yesterday afternoon they played Pump It Up as the backing music to a TV highlights montage of some of the action from the first round at The Open Golf Championship ! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Pump It Up used on tv in the intro build up to the final night of the World Athletics Championship!

On the back of the same track being used during the golf in July, maybe, just maybe, people are finally beginning to realise how good EC's music is ! ! ! 8)

Listening to Radio 5 Live's coverage of the closing minutes of the Premier League's transfer window (7 minutes to go as I type this) Phil McNulty, BBC's Chief Sports Writer announces that Ross Barkley has backed out of a move to Stanford Bridge (despite having agreed a fee and personal terms) with these words : "clearly his view is (I don't want to go to) Chelsea - as Elvis Costello once sang".

Apologies to anyone who thinks this should be on the 'relatively insignificant' thread instead :D

I'd agree if only Elvis had written (I 'm Not Going To Go To ) City as regards Sanchez

Seems 'Chelsea' was being used a bit yesterday. On talksport Bob Mills said it should be called national Elvis Costello day as it seems everyone is saying I don't want to go to Chelsea.

On a different note i caught a cab this morning to the station and I cant stand up for falling down was on the radio. This cabbie normally has radio 4 on. I heard the shipping forecast for the first time in years on Wednesday

My Facebook friends will already know this but, Mrs Sheep and I were out celebrating our silver wedding anniversary last Wednesday at a restaurant in Valldemossa Majorca. They played 'You hung the moon'. Not a fitting song lyrically but the tune fitted the mood of the place.
