Elvis Costello, “Man Out of Time”. I recommend finding the studio version for the excellent harmonies in the chorus.
“Sometimes I almost feel just like a human being”
“20% Amnesia” from Brutal Youth. Now you know.
Elvis Costello, “Beyond Belief”
I might make it California’s fault
Be locked in Geneva’s deepest vault
Just like the canals of Mars and the great barrier reef
I come to you beyond belief
My favorite lyrical rhythm is this.
“What if none of your dreams come true?”
My Mood Swings - Elvis Costello
Elvis Costello, “Two Little Hitlers”
