mvod #926 Elvis Costello and the Attractions – Let Them All Talk

The latest Elvis Costello tune I am digging presently!

As I have mentioned before I am listening to his material in chronological order and am presently on album 8, Punch the Clock.

Punch the Clock sees Elvis return to New Wave/pop after the very baroque (and adventurous) Imperial Bedroom. The album also features the The TKO Horns adding a horn section. And from the get go of “Let Them All Talk”, the horn section sounds great!

Listen and watch:

Full lyrics.

As always, the rhythm section is great, and Steve Nieve on keys! The chorus, surprisingly complex for being just “let them talk, let them talk, let them all talk”! It is composed of layered vocals, including the female singers Afrodiziak (Caron Wheeler and Claudia Fontaine) providing backing vocals alongside Elvis’!
