If You Don't Like This Song, I Don't Like You, Vol. 5

Sorry it's been a while since I've done one of these. But now it's time for another entry. I think this one will come as no surprise. Elvis Costello's first few albums in the late '70s and early '80s are absolutely amazing, and this song, a single released in 1978 (also on the US version of This Year's Model from that same year), is one of his best. Even thirty years ago there were protest songs about the commercialization of radio and the power of record companies. And one of the best moments of my life is when I sang this song at Live Band Karaoke in Chicago. But I've embedded the original version, not my cover. So here's Elvis Costello & The Attractions doing "Radio Radio".
