  • A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the word you first thought of.
  • The groovy thing about pop music is that it's wide open. Anything can happen.
  • Elvis Costello is a good guy. He is very intense. When we were working on 'Painted from Memory,' I could always bet that at 2.30am, if I was up and thinking about something, then he'd be up and thinking about the same thing, too.
  • I've written some really bad songs, which you'll never hear. An example? 'Underneath the Overpass.'
  • They put a label on my music. They called it 'easy listening'. I don't think my songs are easy listening. I don't think 'Anyone Who Had a Heart' is easy listening.
  • I never did much of the drugs, y'know? Although I did used to like a Jack Daniel's. These days, it's just a glass of wine with dinner.
  • Brian Wilson's brilliant but really lucky to be all together, to be able to perform. In fact I think it's miraculous.
