The new single from Pulp -- "Bad Cover Version" -- features a hilarious video parodying the We Are The World/Do They Know Its Christmas-style charity singles. The (looka)likes of Kurt Cobain, Bono, Elvis Costello, Missy Elliott, Phil Collins (naturally), and Macca all take turns singing lines from the song -- sometimes there are remarkable vocal similarities -- and it's all really good fun. That's our Jarvis playing Brian May at the end, and it looks like it might be him doing Costello too (that's definitely him doing Costello's vocal). You can watch the video online here [requires RealPlayer].

Speaking of Elvis Costello, remember the MP3 I put up of Susannah Hoffs doing a song from Costello's new album? Well, now you can hear Elvis's version, because Island are streaming it from their makeshift Elvis Costello website. Elvis can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned, but it's always great to hear him come back to dirty-ass rock and roll.
