: 6. favorite elvis costello line?

"You think you're alone until you realize you're in it.
Now fear is here to stay. Love is here for a visit.
They call it instant justice when it's past the legal limit.
Someone's scratching at the window. I wonder who is it?
The detectives come to check if you belong to the parents
who are ready to hear the worst about their daughter's disappearance.
Though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay,
it only took my little fingers to blow you away."

Nope. I...

Well, he's done a few covers already that I really love. I've always loved his version of My
Funny Valentine...just beautiful. There's a version of Sleepless Nights he does on a Gram
Parsons tribute album which is equally gorgeous...

: 10. What Costello song would you like to see another artist cover? (name band and song)

I'd love to hear Tony Bennett cover Almost Blue. Not sure if that's in his range or not,
