: 1. do you like Elvis Costello? What would you rate him, 1-10, 10 being the best? On my chart? Zappa 1. XTC 2. Elvis and Tom Waits tied at 3.
: 2. favorite elvis costello song? Way too hard for me to give an un-bias reply. "Almost Blue" is such A masterpiece. But in that same frame of mind, I might pull towards "I still Have That Other Girl".
: 3. least favorite elvis costello song? Possibly "Complicated Shadows".
: 4. favorite elvis costello album? While not a fav of anybody, I listen to "the Juliet Letters the most.
: 5. least favorite elvis costello album? What is that one with the fenceing people up on a mountain for a cover? That one.
: 6. favorite elvis costello line? Hmm. So tuff. Most critics will point
to something like "now that your pictures in the paper being
rythymicly admired" (and you can't fault them for that) I have a few
"I'm certain as a lost dog, pondering a a signpost" or
"Thank you for the flowers. I threw them on the fire. And I burned
the photographs you had enclosed. GOD they were ugly children!"
: 7. Have you seen him live? Was he good? Sadly, no. But he is on my "I
must shake is hand some day" list. So far only fullfilled by meeting
Andy Partridge of XTC.
: 8. do you wish to see him live? I'm dying to.
: 9. What song would you love to see Costello cover? "Caravan"
: 10. What Costello song would you like to see another artist cover? (name
band and song) Radiohead doing "the Birds Will Still Be Singin"
