Coloring Club Plus — 2/3/19

Feb 3

Feb 3a

This morning as I colored this, I listened to Elvis Costello’s album, “King of America”.

wikipedia says: King of America is the tenth studio album by the British rock singer and songwriter Elvis Costello, released in 1986…It was billed as by “The Costello Show featuring the Attractions and Confederates” in the UK and Europe, and “The Costello Show featuring Elvis Costello” in North America. It peaked at #11 on the UK album chart, and at #39 on the Billboard 200. Some songs have a Country feel, others reflect his interest in Americana, whilst ‘American Without Tears’ deals with the experience of Irish immigrants in the US, and ‘Little Palaces’ references Costello’s working-class roots.

I bought this when it first came out and listened to it a lot.  Then, as is often the way of CDs, it found its way to the shelf and started gathering dust.  Hans reminded me of it yesterday in one of his posts so I pulled it back out for a listen.  This is the first track off of it, “Brilliant Mistake.”  Did I mention I love this song?  Yah, I do.

  1. Over the years I have thought that many times about things I’ve said or done– it was a fine idea at the time now it’s a brilliant mistake….

  2. Did you see who is interviewing him? Yes, I don’t know much about EC but I want to learn more. So far mostly just listen to the music part, but I think he has a lot to say so will start looking at the lyrics.
