Let me tell you about my obsession with Elvis Costello

I feel it's time to share with y'all why I am so crazy about Mr. Macmanus after all. Well truth is, it's kind of a family affair. My father got me into him when I was a kid (I was named after the Elvis Costello song 'Veronica' which is my real first name). We used to sing it all the time drving me to and from Weldon Park Acadamy (another story for another day). He gave me my first Costello CD, Spike and introduced me to all the songs on it. We also went to see Elvis together in Montreal this past summer. 2006's My Flame Burns Blue was my favourite album of the year and his latest release with Allen Toussaint has a couple of gems that I won't forget either. I know this is pretty out of the blue, but I thought it was about time I paid homage to the greatest man in music.
