    Radio died because they didn't play enough Elvis Costello.

    The good news is that this song was written when radio was still listenable. The bad news is that this song was written when radio was still listenable.

    The song is awesome, but he always sort of manages to kill his own songs (more or less) in the refrains.

    Man, Imagine how this song would have tuned out written 20 years later. If he thought it was bad in the 70's/80's I wonder what he has to say now.

    One of my favorite Elvis Costello tracks. Yeah, radio used to be important, but he was definitely looking forward with this one...

    This is the song to start with when you're talkin' Elvis. Either of them.

    They don't give you any choice 'cause they think that it's treason.

    One of the greatest moments of my concert-going life was seeing Weird Al Yankovic stop several bars into Amish Paradise and launch into a straight-up cover of this song. Fan-damn-tastic.
