    Such as "....even in a perfect world where everyone is equal, I'd still own the film rights and be working on the sequel..."

    Always been a real favourite. Admittedly it is hardly in the classic Costello mould, but it is so damn catchy.

    If you can track it down, the live version from the boot "10/06/83 Glassgow" is superb, and puts the album version to shame.

    The stacatto piano in the chorus makes this song. Great tune, but The World and his Wife off of Punch the Clock is better.

    By far the best song on a subpar album. You have to wonder what Nick Lowe would have down with this song. Actually, there's a live version on the Rhino re-release that is absolutely scalding. Worth a listen.

    Part of me wants to hate this song so much, but part of me wants to just keep listening to it. It's mesmerizing.
