Tuesday lost and found: Elvis Costello 'Watch Your Step'



The early ‘80s were a transition period for music and television. On late night TV, NBC started to phase out the old (Tom Snyder) with the new (David Letterman) while America was beginning to realize that Elvis not only meant Presley, but Costello too.

Those two worlds collided in 1981 when Elvis Costello performed Watch Your Step on The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder to promote his Trust album.

Like most Costello songs, Watch You Step did not chart. By 2003, the world acknowledged the greatness of Costello by inducting him into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.
