I write about songs.

Elvis Costello, “New Lace Sleeves”

I was a skeptical young fellow. Here’s me in 1978, 10 years old, spotting a poster for This Year’s Model in the record and tape department of our local Two Guys department store: “That guy is trying to become famous by using the same name as Elvis Presley!” A couple years later, seeing a display advertising Zenyattà Mondatta in the showcase window at the entrance to Korvette’s: “These guys, naming their band after an occupation, are ripping off the Village People!” No one was going to pull the wool over this disco kid’s eyes.
