THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Elvis Costello – “Watching The Detectives”

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Elvis Costello – “Watching The Detectives”.

Elvis Says: “Something was supposed to be changing. I spent a lot of time with just a big jar of instant coffee and the first Clash album, listening to it over and over. By the time I got down to the last few grains, I had written “Watching the Detectives”. The chorus had these darting figures that I wanted to sound like something from a Bernard Herrmann score. The piano and organ on the recorded version were all we could afford.”
