Elvis @ Amoeba

elviscostello“Elvis has left the building.” These words could have been uttered at our favorite independent record store in the Haight today, but they wouldn’t have been referring to a Presley impersonator. They would have been talking about Señor Costello, another Elvis legend of a different—and more modern—time. I should have left my own office building to see him perform in my hood, especially since I could have tried to coax a “Happy Birthday” out of him on this, the special day I came into the world. Promoting his new Nashville-tinged album, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane, here’s a track from one of Britain’s most prolific singer-songwriters of all time:
