Song of the Day – “There’s a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis” – Kirsty MacColl

But he’s a liar and I’m not sure about you

The lovely Kirsty MacColl wrote a country/rockabilly tune about the uncertainty of a relationship, and had the humor to give it a fabulous title. From 1981. We miss you, Kirsty.

Oh darling you’re so popular
You were the best thing new in Hicksville …
With your mohair suits and foreign shoes
News is you changed your pickup for a Seville
