    I thought he would have a thread but I did a search and it did not show up.

    So I just love his music I think that he is a brilliant lyricist :heart: I have just been listening to him non stop this week.

    Armed Forces is possibly my favorite album of the 1970s (and that is saying something). I love his newer music as well he has not gone down hill like a lot of artists that have been around for over 30 years.

    ELVIS COSTELLO!!! one of the greatest musicians of all time. i hold "alison" very dear to my heart--my uncle used to sing it to me all the time (actually, he still does). but there are so many other great songs . . . blame it on cain, watching the detectives, accidents will happen. great thread. :)

    I honestly believed that there was already a thread here! It was on my tfs to-do list to finally search for it just the other day, but it slipped my mind. :p

    I've always wanted to collect all of the re-issued albums from Rhino Records, but I only ever got My Aim Is True.

    As much as I love his original material (too many favourite songs to list), for some reason I think his interpretations of other artists' songs are some of his best stuff. He is perhaps one of the few musicians that consistently makes a cover song his own.

    do you like the collaboration with burt bacharach? why (or why not)?

    i don't hear all the songs but i like the long division, the sweetest punch and god give me strength—a lot.

    I like the burt bacharach collabs because they are more loungey. Has anyone seen his tv show is it any good?

    is it only seen in the uk?

    i think he wd make a good host b/c he not only knows everything about music, all kinds, but he's an all-around polymath, he even kind of poked fun at himself for being a know-it-all in "my science-fiction twin" on brutal youth...
