Excellent way to start the day - thanks! And, yes, I know I said "start" and it's after 9. I've been doped up on cold meds for three days. I'm lucky to be vertical :) Going back for more Elvis now...

Christian-
In my opinion...One cannot live without Elvis Costello! I have been enjoying his show on Sundance "Spectacle: Elvis Costello With:" immensly.
Thanks for sharing!

Hmmmm...I consider myself more of a child of the 80s vs the 70s (although I was born in late 70), so I can't claim to be familiar with this song!

I picked one of your posts in my 2009 roundup. Best wishes for a wonderful 2010!
