Elvis Costello "Shipbuilding"

Lesson description: This is simply an epicly gorgeous tune. Mr. Costello really captured something magical here. The chords, lyrics, melody, and feel all work together so well...you could really just sink into this song.

Theory-wise, there's minor line cliches, diminished substitutes, key shifts, and subtle rhythmic anticipations--more than enough food for thought!
