From long ago and far away... when Sir Elton was relevant:
Apropos of nuthin'... isn't it amazing how the words to certain tunes become so deeply and indelibly etched in our brains? I found myself singin' along to this tune right out loud as the song rolled out of the speakers of My Very Expensive Radio. And I didn't miss a single word, beat, or inflection, either. Perhaps it's repetition or mebbe it's something else, like the singin' of the piece to a significant other countless times.
But whatever it might be, this song stands the test of time... unlike SO many of His Lordship's other compositions. I'd be thinkin' of "Candle in the Wind" and "Crocodile Rock," among many others... the likes of which might make me physically ill if I hear them but ONE more time. YMMV, of course.
