Elvis Costello – No Action
The needle on my mind's turntable kept dropping on this tune every time I woke up last night. I've previously said (via Tweet, probably while drinking) that Elvis Costello's "No Action" is my favorite Side 1, Track 1 ever. That might be a slight stretch upon further reflection, but it's not terribly far from the truth. It absolutely is, however, a killer start to This Year's Model, an album with great song after great fucking song and one of my favorites ever. There's such a timeless sound to this album; indie rock bands are still trying to replicate Costello's off-kilter, up beat punk to no avail. He's one of the very few artists who's never made a song I didn't at least mostly like.
What do you guys think? Best album opener ever?
