「アレサ・フランクリンを見た後、あなたは二度と同じになることはありません」: エルビスコステロの正直なプレイリスト

The first song I remember hearing
It’s a family legend that even before I was forming sentences, フランク・シナトラがレコードプレーヤーで歌った「Got You UnderMySkin」をリクエストする方法を知っていました. もちろん私は偏見があります, but my wife [jazz musician Diana Krall] does the other, definitive version.

最初 record I owned
に 1962, I heard my dad [彼は癌を患っており、8ヶ月の生存期間がありました Ross MacManus] rehearsing a song from Georgie Fame’s Fame at Last EP and he gave me the record. Georgie is an unsung great advocate for other artists. I once got to sing with Count Basie and totally humiliated myself because I’d learned his classic Lil’ Darlin’ off a Georgie Fame record.

The song that is my karaoke go-to
Maybe it is because I gave up drinking 25 数年前, but my exposure to karaoke is limited to watching Bill Murray チキンとビスケット (What’s So Funny ’Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding in Lost in Translation. I would pick King of the Road by Roger Miller; it is a song where you could make up anything and nobody would notice.

The song I inexplicably know all the lyrics to
I have on many occasions recited Noël Coward’s The Stately Homes of England. It’s a beautiful lyric and very, very funny.

The best song to play at a party
I’m thinking of the parties I went to as a teenager, so the Isley Brothers’ Behind a Painted Smile is my pick. I was the person who would haunt the edge of the dancefloor, open the Party Seven pale ale and hope to fascinate some girl with my wit and charm, usually unsuccessfully.

The performance that I’ll never forget
私のために, Aretha Franklin doing Don’t Play That Song (You Lied) live on The Cliff Richard Show. After a moment like that you’re never the same again. This song is rich in the gospel she absorbed as a young girl. I’d happily listen to her piano intro alone over 20 タイムズ.

The best song to have sex to
Behind Closed Doors by Charlie Rich. It’s not the song, it’s the statement in the title. Then we fade to black …

The song I want played at my funeral
Louis Armstrong singing Fats Waller’s Keepin’ Out of Mischief Now. I walked down the aisle to this – that’s another kind of pledge, そうじゃないですか? So if I must die, I’m keeping out of mischief after that.

Elvis Costello’s new album, The Boy Named If, グラスゴーのオーン.
