FRT: AG Hearts EC

The only Elvis that matters

Please excuse my light posting these past couple of weeks. I spent last week getting ready for my trip to LA, and spent this week catching up on work and sleep after LA. And I managed to get my right index finger mangled by my car door the other day. It's ugly and painful, and the massive amount of gauze and tape my doctor put on it is making it really difficult to type. The good news is that nothing is broken; the bad news is that the latex finger covering my doctor is forcing me to wear makes it look like I'm constantly ready to give someone a prostate exam.

I'm not sure what's up with my random ten this week, because it's not even remotely random--there are four Elvis Costello songs on here! Granted, three are covers, but a 40% EC list is excessive even for me. Also, I am including a link to the Eef Barzelay song that's #1 on my list...listen to the first verse and you'll understand why it's my new favorite song.

  1. Ballad of Bitter Honey - Eef Barzelay (MOKB)
  2. Riot Act - Elvis Costello & The Attractions
  3. Bad Girl - Detroit Cobras
  4. Girls Talk - Dave Edmunds
  5. Joanna - Scott Walker
  6. Stop! - The Bens
  7. Try a Little Tenderness - Otis Redding
  8. Indoor Fireworks - Laura Cantrell
  9. Clementine (Live @ KEXP) - Colin Meloy
  10. Hidden Shame - Johnny Cash

Your turn!

Everyone enjoy the weekend.

Eef Barzelay: interesting. think I want to hear some more from this guy. Thanks for the introduction. and over on MOKB I saw that Colin Meloy is doing a show not too far from the college my son attends in Maryland. He's a fan of the decemberists so I wonder if they'll try and go.... oh to be 19 again (but only if I can still know what I know now)

Kurt and Wake: You should check out Eef's band, Clem Snide. They're a cheeky alt.country band from Brooklyn...lots of fun. Here's a site with mp3s. There is a song on there called "Enrique Iglesias' Mole;" the song is every bit as good as its name.
