            For all Elvis fans...

            Best song he's written..


            Brilliant Mistake
            He thought he was the King of America
            Where they pour Coca Cola just like vintage wine
            Now I try hard not to become hysterical
            But I'm not sure if I am laughing or crying
            I wish that I could push a button
            And talk in the past and not the present tense
            And watch this hurtin' feeling disappear
            Like it was common sense
            It was a fine idea at the time
            Now it's a brilliant mistake

            She said that she was working for the ABC News
            It was as much of the alphabet as she knew how to use
            Her perfume was unspeakable
            It lingered in the air
            Like her artificial laughter
            Her mementos of affairs
            "Oh" I said "I see you know him"
            "Isn't that very fortunate for you"
            And she showed me his calling card
            He came third or fourth and there were more than one or two
            He was a fine idea at the time
            Now he's a brilliant mistake

            He thought he was the King of America
            But it was just a boulevard of broken dreams
            A trick they do with mirrors and with chemicals
            The words of love in whispers
            And the axe of love in screams
            I wish that I could push a button
            And talk in the past and not the present tense
            And watch this lovin' feeling disappear
            Like it was common sense
            I was a fine idea at the time
            Now I'm a brilliant mistake

                    I'll sound like Father Time on this but NOTHING in music EVER shook up St Louis like Twist And Shout did back in the early 60's. I remember going into Circle Steak and, when it came on KWK, probably every OTHER song on a Friday night, EVERYONE would just blast their radios and the place just rocked.

                    It was riveting! Just riveting!

                          Wang - I've listened to damn near everything he's put out, and own almost all of it - save for "Painted From Memory" - that Burt Bacharach album.

                          I have to admit I'm disappointed in "North", but I think it has something with "falling in love" with Diana Krall that made him write all of that namby pamby love crap.

                          Personally, I have to agree that GirlsGirlsGirls is the essential "I've never heard of Elvis Costello" collection. It really sends you through a fairly decent timeline of his stuff.

                          He is, and will always be, my favorite singer/songwriter.

                            You'll make Wangster cry if you don't vote for Costello.
