The sparsity of Elvis Costello songs in the SC collection is a striking omission of gargantuan proportion. Any 80's fan is an Elvis fan as he's surely one of the only artists diverse enough to appeal from the 'punk' market all the way to the Carnagie Hall set. There's just no way an Elvis disc wouldn't be a huge success.
Some 'must have' songs that aren't available now:
*'Watching the detectives' (a no-brain choice) *'Almost Blue' 'Chelsea' 'Mystery Dance' *'Shipbuilding' *'Red Shoes' 'Green Shirt' *'This years girl' 'lovers walk' 'Party girl' *'Riot Act' *'Poisoned Rose' *'Indoor Fireworks' 'Less than Zero' '*Watch your step'
My personal must-haves with the asterisk.
BTW, !!THANK YOU!! for the news on the new hip-hop disk. I've been waiting -forever- for this...
Apparently Mr. Costello is one of these artists who hates the concept of karaoke and so refuses the rights of companies like SC to make his songs on karaoke. I know for a fact that he will not allow any of his songs to be used in television commercials, in the UK certainly.

Ah, Bose, but he HAS had several songs released by SC: "Accidents Will Happen", "Alison", "Everyday I Write the Book", "Veronica", and "Toledo" from his recent collaboration with Burt Bacharach. Also, All Hits released an OK version of "Pump It Up".
I myself would like to see "Man Out of Time", "Oliver's Army", "Man Called Uncle", "High Fidelity", and even more recent EC material as "13 Steps Lead Down" and "Kinder Murder".
