Elvis Costello – The Artist

Declan Patrick MacManus (born 1954), better known by his stage name Elvis Costello, is an English musician, singer, songwriter, composer, record producer, author, television presenter, and occasional actor. He began his career as part of London’s pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk and new wave movement that emerged in the mid-to-late 1970s. His critically acclaimed debut album, My Aim Is True, was released in 1977. Shortly after recording it, he formed the Attractions as his backing band. Costello and the Attractions toured and recorded together for the better part of a decade, though differences between them caused a split by 1986. Much of Costello’s work since has been as a solo artist, though reunions with members of the Attractions have been credited to the group over the years.

Everyday I write The Book – The Song

Everyday I Write The Book is a song written by Elvis Costello and performed by Elvis Costello  and his backing band, the attractions. It was a single taken from his eighth studio album with the attractions, called ‘Punch The Clock’. The lyrics draw various parallels between romance and the process of writing a book. The narrator identifies himself as “a man with a mission in two or three editions” and tells his lover “your compliments and your cutting remarks are captured here in my quotation marks.” He also compares the stages of their relationship with chapters in a book.
