Hillary Clinton's Super Sweet Sixtieth Special Guest: Elvis Costello

October 9, 2007 5:31 PM ET

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is turning sixty, and to celebrate, the Hillary 60th Birthday Committee is inviting 2,800 of her closest friends (err, supporters) to enjoy a concert by Elvis Costello at New York's Beacon Theater on October 25th -- which is totally like when Pitbull entertained at Priscilla's bday bash on My Super Sweet 16 ... or not. For the pocket-change price of $2,300, you too can purchase "Rock Star" tickets, which allow you to sit in the Premium Orchestra section where, we're assuming, you'll sway and maybe brush elbows with "important people." For $1,000, the "Platinum" package, you'll get orchestra seats, which should provide a good view of Costello and the back of the former president's silvery mane. For anyone who just wants to see Elvis, especially Republican Costello fans, $250 buys nosebleed balcony seats. Before we start throwing down our hard earned money on another campaign trail though, we want assurances that Costello will play some or all of these RS hand-picked songs for the Clintons:

"Sneaky Feelings"
"Pay It Back"
"No Action"
"(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea"
"Accidents Will Happen"
"Busy Bodies"
"You'll Never Be A Man"
"Almost Blue"
"Blue Chair"
"Little Blue Window"
"My Flame Burns Blue"
"Baby Plays Around"
"Episode of Blonde"

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
