Sometimes nothing is better than a Richard Hell & The Voidoids song, so this collaboration with Elvis Costello is almost unbeatable. The simplicity in the guitar solo is brilliant and it develops a groove that makes me shiver.
Elvis Costello stands for the vocals in this version of “You Gotta Lose” and I have heard that he had no idea about the lyrics until 10 minutes before the show and then had to memorize them in that short amount of time. It is impossible to notice anyway since his performance is perfect.
