Song 428: Love Gets You Twisted

Graham Parker never did get enough airplay.

Why isn’t Love Gets You Twisted played regularly every Valentine’s Day?

When you catch a Graham Parker song on the radio, just ask somebody who they think the performer is.  Chances are they will say Elvis Costello.  There’s plenty of difference between the two, and I like Elvis fine, but seriously, Graham Parker deserves his due.  Some of the most biting lyrics you will find from the rock and roll period, and that’s saying something.

Keep going, Graham.  I’ve seen him twice and hope to see him again in concert.
