“Mustapha” and “White Queen” are just two tracks we think don’t get enough love.
“Pump It Up” and “Lipstick Vogue” reveal Elvis Costello’s songwriting skills had reached a higher level. His then-new band, The Attractions, also helped kick it up a few notches.
Back in the day, many rock bands experimented with dance beats. Most failed. Queen didn’t, even if “Hot Space” didn’t sell. It’s time to re-consider.
