As a longtime music maven (former editor at Crawdaddy etc.) and author of a new e-book probing the death penalty in the USA (Dead Reckoning), I thought it would be apt for me to post a video here every day with a song illustrating or commenting on executions in America. So far we've featured J. Cash, Metallica, Springsteen, Led Zep, The Band, Billie Holiday, and more. Today? Vintage Elvis -- Costello, that is, on infamous Brit case.
