Song of the Day – “Beyond Belief” – Elvis Costello

On this day in 1982, the Imperial Bedroom album was released. This song led off the album.

This was Costello’s first album to be released with printed lyrics. It’s kind of ironic, since this was also the first album where he enunciated so clearly that I could understand what he was saying anyway.

My favorite concert ever was the one from the tour supporting this album. I was at the Fox, just a few rows back in the balcony, and saw him do five encores of three songs each. It seemed the night would never end, and I was ecstatic.
