I wanna be loved - Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello announced the breakup of Elvis Costello and the Attractions shortly before the release of their eighth album together, 'Goodbye cruel world' (1984). He also announced his retirement, but that proved to be shortlived.

The album, meanwhile, yielded two hit singles, 'The only flame in town' and this one, 'I wanna be loved'. The track featured backing vocals by Green Gartside of Scritti Politti and was a cover of an obscure single by Teacher's Edition. The single reached number 25 in the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 2888
Found: Beanos, East Croydon, London, October 29, 1997
Cost: 50p
Tracks: 'I wanna be loved' / 'Turning the town red'
