Song of the Day – “Hoover Factory” – Elvis Costello

Five miles out of London on the Western Avenue
Must have been a wonder when it was brand new

Today marks five and a half years of the Song of the Day, and I’m celebrating with one of my favorite off-album songs from the prolific Elvis Costello. I didn’t hear this B-side to “Clubland” (Trust) until it was collected on Taking Liberties (US) and Ten Bloody Marys & Ten How’s Your Fathers (UK).

His solo tour came through Atlanta a couple of weeks ago, so of course I was there. I got to hear “Hoover Factory” live, and it was a treat.
