Best Elvis Costello Songs Under Two Minutes
There were so many to choose from thx to Get Happy!!
- 1.Girls TalkHis version wasn't the big hit (Dave Edmunds got that honor), but he wrote it and it's great.
- 2.Hoover FactoryA taste in the 70s of where he would go in later years.
- 3.Welcome to the Working WeekFirst song on his first album. This would take 1st place on Elvis Costello songs under 90 seconds.
- 4.The ImposterMost bass notes in under two minutes award.
- 5.Talking in the DarkBaroque, Beatles-y oh so British pop.
- 6.Love for TenderDescending bass lines for those pressed for time.
- 7.Beaten To the PunchWorth it just for the way he screams the line at the end.
- 8.Black and White WorldPretty sophisticated ditty given its length
- 9.Mystery DanceYou know it, you love it.
- 10.Clean MoneyI believe this was an attempt to do a Cheap Trick style song (it's mentioned in his memoir). Rocks pretty hard.
