"Sneaky Feelings"..............and some of you voting for tracks that came out after Armed Forces...........that definitely is a joke, right?

I'm not a big fan of it in its original recording, but there's a couple of bootleg versions I've heard where he goes on a lovely little vamp at the end.

That live album he did with Het Metropole Orkest, My Flame Burns Blue, is amazing!

Oh Christ, I forgot a few

Imperial Bedroom > Beyond Belief
Get Happy!! > King Horse
Blood and Chocolate > Crimes of Paris
Armed Forces > Green Shirt
The River in Reverse > The Sharpest Thorn

And let's also appreciate how musically brilliant Steve Nieves is.

you know Alison was the song that I couldn't just get into, I couldn't see why it was one of his most famous and then one day on shuffle it snuck up on me...his voice, the lyrics, the guitar...I don't know but it surely captivated me with its sheer brilliance.

I love it when he sings U2 Songs -
Kite - you can hear a part of this here:
http://www.elvis-costello.net/audio.php

I have also see him playing "Please" from POP. I think on youtube but now I can not find it there anymore.
