Elivis Costello- "Crawl into the USA"

If I had time to make an actual steevsongofday entry, today's song would be "Crawl in to the USA" by Elvis Costello. It's a nearly (circa 1977-9) song that never got released on an Attractions album. It was played lvie extensively and the recorded version (available on the extende "This Year's Model" disc) features Mick Jones on guitar. It's the incredible drive, sardonic lyricism and crushing soundscape arrangement found on later Nick Lowe-produced albums.

If you can find this anywhere, it certainly worth the download. Though you'd be better off buying the extended "This Year's Model". It will get stuck in your head.

But I don't have the time to make a real entry, so that's all you get. : )
