Elvis Costello’s October Surprise’50 Songs For 50 Days’

Message from Costello on his FB -page “Presenting lyrics written over the last 50 years,
most of them my own, and heard on recordings made between 1977 and 2020, including several that will be issued here for the first time. These songs were written in response to
events over these many years but it strikes me that you may find something useful in them
at this present moment; a joke, a motto or even a couple of dance steps to keep the blood pumping and the hot sauce at hand.

I hope these songs will amuse, console or even infuriate, because passive indifference is
hardly the way forward. From September 15th, we will bring you a different song every
day for the next 50 days.”
