It was originally by Nick Lowe’s old band Brinsley Schwarz. Log in to Reply ekko January 26, 2009 Sorry, dude, but I disagree. It’s an Elvis song. Just like Respect is Aretha, not Otis Redding, and Watchtower is Hendrix, not Dylan. Elvis OWNS that song. Log in to Reply Thomas January 26, 2009 Ever heard of Nick Lowe. And you know what´s so funny about it…..? Log in to Reply Rick. January 26, 2009 Agreed. Although it’s a Nick Lowe song, Elvis is definitely the guy who made it amazing and popularized it. Log in to Reply Hanan January 26, 2009 dude, thanks for these. I freaking LOVE Elvis Costello Log in to Reply biopunk January 26, 2009 What?!? No version of Pump It Up? This needs immediate rectification. Get yr ears to: http://www.myspace.com/dankojones Log in to Reply Trevor Stenson February 4, 2009 Another Great Post. Elvis C. does great covers, covers great songs, and has even done songs he wrote in the hopes that others would perform them (some did, some he did himself). What more could you want!!! -Kitschy Log in to Reply Add Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
