Elvis Costello on the Blues.

"They used to just get on with things, didn't they? 
They had the blues then. 
They understood the idea of the blues."

"There are about five things to write songs about: 
I'm leaving you. You're leaving me. I want you. You don't want me. 
I believe in something. 
Five subjects, and twelve notes. 
For all that, we musicians do pretty well."

Elvis Costello,
Esquire Magazine, 2003.
