Not only is Elvis Costello one of the greatest songwriters of our times, he is a prophet, too!
Don't believe me? Well take a look at these lyrics from the song King of America, written in 1986.
thought he was the King of America
Where they pour Coca Cola just like vintage wine
Now I try hard not to become hysterical
But I'm not sure if I am laughing or crying
I wish that I could push a button
And talk in the past and not the present tense
And watch this hurtin' feeling disappear
Like it was common sense
He was a fine idea at the time
Now he's a brilliant mistake
