  1. Elvis Costello wanted to include a cover of “Pop Life” on his 1997 “Extreme Honey: The Very Best of Warner Brothers Years” greatest hits compilation. Prince said no way. Probably because the collection was a Warner Brothers release. Elvis, not to be detered, wrote “The Bridge I Burn” in the style of his version of “Pop Life.” (He even repeats “pop life” throughout the cut) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGhlUBtY8_I

  2. “The Bridge I Burned” Typo. 🙂

  3. Possibly my favourite episode of Coverville, notwithstanding the sad circumstances which led to it.
