What's So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding?

If you remember Elvis Costello singing this song, or even if you watched Bill Murray lipsynch it (warning, that was a Bad Quality link) in Lost In Translation, then this interview Nick Lowe did with Terry Gross (NPR's Fresh Air) is for you. He wrote the song "What's So Funny About Peace, Love, and Understanding," and he even gives a brief performance of it for Terry with a few tongue-in-cheek remarks thrown in for good measure ("here I was...twenty-two years old and seen it all...but when Elvis Costello cut it, he sounded like he really meant it").

How the mighty have mellowed.
