Terry, I'm sure you have the We Gotta Get Outta This Place somewhere, they did it at MTV Unplugged and if they did it there, I'm sure its been done elsewhere as well! We knew what Costello song you meant :-)

Okay, so apparently I meant "What's So Funny...", and *not* "We Gotta Get
Out Of This Place." [though I could swear I had a live recording of him
covering this somewhere. However, since I can't find it I'm gonna say it
was all in my mind.] Sorry for my senility.

Anyway, my original statement definitely holds true with "What's So
Funny...", as I'm sure everyone here will agree! Midnight Oil just rocks
that song.

One of my fav songs is "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place", love the
original Animals version, and the Angels and Oils versions but I'm not
familiar with the Costello one, what album can I find it on?
