I’ve discovered the solution to our dependency on declining supplies of fossil fuels.
All we have to do is tap into the intense energy created by the following performance of Elvis Costello & The Attractions from 1978.
There’s enough electricity running through this band and these songs to power a small city, and there’s only 45 minutes of music here.
Even when Elvis is standing perfectly still, the driving of the beat propels, and you can feel the power boiling up inside of him, oozing from him with his sweat, spitting out of him with his forceful and relentless vocal delivery.
My band just added Elvis’ classic rendition of Nick Lowe‘s (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding? to our repertoire, working on it for the first time last night, and I can still feel the buzz from it.
The energy is for real, man! Watch it and you’ll see.
Happy Weekend, everyone!
