Де́клан Па́трик Макма́нус , более известный как Э́лвис Косте́лло — британский певец и композитор, оказавший большое влияние на развитие современной поп-музыки. Поначалу будучи участником паб-рок-сцены, к концу 1970-х годов он стал одним из самых популярных исполнителей новой волны, а впоследствии получил репутацию, возможно, самого авторитетного автора-исполнителя после Боба Дилана. Семь альбомов Элвиса Костелло входили в UK Top 20, а Brutal Youth поднялся до #2. Самыми успешными синглами этого исполнителя были «I Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down» и «A Good Year for the Roses» .

„As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?“

— Elvis Costello
Context: As I walk through This wicked world Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity, I ask myself Is all hope lost? Is there only pain and hatred, and misery? And each time I feel like this inside, There's one thing I wanna know: What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love, & Understanding? Though Costello's cover became a hit, "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding", was actually written by Nick Lowe.

„With all the will in the world
Diving for dear life
When we could be diving for pearls.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: The boy said 'Dad they're going to take me to task But I'll be back by Christmas' It's just a rumour that was spread around town Somebody said that someone got filled in For saying that people get killed in The result of this shipbuilding With all the will in the world Diving for dear life When we could be diving for pearls. Shipbuilding, written by Elvis Costello and Clive Langer

„You might have never heard, but God's comic.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: Now Im dead, now Im dead, and you're all Going on to meet your reward. Are you scared? Are you scared? Are you scared? Are you scared? You might have never heard, but God's comic. God's Comic

„Obviously the people that I admired, like the Beatles, were really into rock'n'roll, but it was already a little past rock'n'roll when I started listening and making my own choices about music.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: Obviously the people that I admired, like the Beatles, were really into rock'n'roll, but it was already a little past rock'n'roll when I started listening and making my own choices about music. I've been lucky to listen to lots of different types of music.

„Alison, I know this world is killing you.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: Alison, I know this world is killing you. Oh, Alison, my aim is true. My aim is true. Alison

„Nonsense prevails, modesty fails
Grace and virtue turn into stupidity“

— Elvis Costello
Context: Nonsense prevails, modesty fails Grace and virtue turn into stupidity While the calendar fades almost all barricades to a pale compromise And our leaders have feasts on the backsides of beasts They still think they're the gods of antiquity If something you missed didn't even exist It was just an ideal — is it such a surprise? All This Useless Beauty

„Oh I used to be disgusted
and now I try to be amused.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes

„I had a lot of problems with my name … my first name Declan is really not very well known outside of Ireland, MacManus is a name they could never spell ...“

— Elvis Costello
Context: I had a lot of problems with my name … my first name Declan is really not very well known outside of Ireland, MacManus is a name they could never spell... if you think about the names of '76, '77 … I got off kind of lightly — with a name you could live with, you know, in time. … I kind of liked the dare of it. Of course we weren't to know that within a month of my first album actually being issued Elvis Presley would die, and it would actually be a talking point. … Let me put it this way — people don't forget you with that name. It's sort of receded as — and this may sound terribly disrespectful and heretical — but as Elvis Presley has receded as a musical force, people make much less of a case about it. Elvis is a sort of cultural figure but there is no direct line between the music of Elvis Presley and the music of today. There is none whatsoever, he's no influence whatsoever, that I can detect, on music made today. Other than people who consciously retro in styling themselves after his ideas. There is no direct impact in the way that you can hear the influence of The Beatles or Stevie Wonder or numerous other people.

„Obviously, when I started out, I had a little bit more curiosity than some“

— Elvis Costello
Context: Obviously, when I started out, I had a little bit more curiosity than some, and went seeking out the original artists, or in some cases searching up country music. I followed The Byrds a lot, and then when they did a country styled record it made me curious to know who these people were that they liked.

„My sense of history in music is much greater than a lot of people's.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: My sense of history in music is much greater than a lot of people's. I listen a lot further back in the whole history of music. It's not just pop music of the last 20, 30, 40, 50 years. I'm listening to stuff from hundreds of years ago as well, because you can learn from everything.

„The first song that most people picked up on, particularly in America, of mine, was a ballad, not a rock'n'roll song.“

— Elvis Costello
Context: The first song that most people picked up on, particularly in America, of mine, was a ballad, not a rock'n'roll song. It was 'Alison', and that's an R&B ballad. I don't think there's any other way to describe it.
