Perhaps the best band ever, Elvis Costello and the Attractions
. I first started buying Elvis Costello albums after his Satuday Night Live
appearance on December 17, 1977. The details of this classic moment can be found here
. At the time, Elvis Costello was like a breath of fresh air. Then he went country western a few years later, and I lost interest. Still, Elvis Costello is the King
, in my humble opinion.
It bears mentioning that the music that the country was listening to in 1977 were songs like Muskrat Love
, "Dancing Queen
," "Blinded By The Light
," "The Things We Do For Love
," "The Rubberband Man
" and the "Theme From 'Rocky'"
- which was played everywhere
