“My Little Red Book” – Elvis Costello & Burt Bacharach

Theme of the week: The varied versions of Burt Bacharach & Hal David’s My Little Red Book

I think we’ll end this 5-day exploration of the evolution of a pop song by closing off the circle, all ouroboros-like, with a later Burt Bacharach take on My Little Red Book. This one was performed/recorded 1998 featuring Elvis Costello on vocals, Burt on the keys, and a pared down studio orchestra backing them up. 

While the arrangement does sound a bit… dated (though that could be a wholly subjective impression, garnered from my growing up in the ’70s when Burt’s “sound” either solidified and strongified or ossified and stagnated–take your pick–and was freakin’ everywhere… even had a little music box thing in my toddling years that played his Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head (written by Bacharach & Hal David, for 1969’s movie, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid) over and over and over and over again) it is back to the core of the Bacharach sound and original intention & style that the song started out with, almost 35 years before this performance was recorded.

Wow, most tortured sentence ever. I like parentheticals.

So, this is it for this theme, thanks for reading, watching, and listening…
