Elvis Costello: Red Shoes (The Angels Wanna Wear My)
Hem: (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes
I had a feeling I'd have to be quick with 'red shoes' songs this week, and I see Paul beat me to it with the first one...nevermind, there are still plenty to go around. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least another five songs just about red shoes, never mind any other colour!
Elvis Costello is one of my faves, and there are no two ways about it, this is a brilliant song, also covered very ably by Hem on Almost You: The Songs of Elvis Costello...this cover technically breaks the '20th century songs only' rule here at SMM, the CD it is on being released in 2003, but it's ever so pretty!!
