Elvis Costello and the Attractions – (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding (1978)

I just love Elvis Costello and I could have posted any of two dozen songs from Alison, Oliver’s Army, (I Don’t Want To Go To) Chelsea, I Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down, I Want You, etc, etc.

So, it’s rather odd that I kick off with Elvis performing a cover version of Nick Lowe’s classic “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding”. In my view, the definitive version of a perfect song relying on a simple guitar riff to die for.

Not actually on the original Armed Forces LP.

The original video from 1978 followed by a simply unbelievable live version from David (Elvis) Letterman in 2003 …  one of the great performances!
