My Favourite Songs – What do I do now? – Elvis Costello

As if you didn’t know. I have a weakness for heartbreak songs. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to post a favourite political song, given the state of the world, but there’s enough of that being posted elsewhere. So I’m going to give you one of my favouriute songs about the despair in love. We all know it will tear us apart.

Elvis Costello’s cover of Sleeper’s What do I do now?¬†is a perfect¬†. The difference between the two versions could not be more pronounced and I think Costello communicates the despair in the words far more convincingly. He’s not as good looking as Ms Wener though.
