Oh, Elton John, I always knew you were a big deal, but when I was recording music off the radio in the late ’80s, your talents were at low tide. Don’t get me wrong, Elton John, I loved the music you were putting out, especially “Healing Hands”. Loooove me some “Healing Hands”. But you and I know that “A Word In Spanish” isn’t paying the bills.
So I was really glad to know that I was going to be getting some classic Elton John tunes on here to re-acquaint (or in many cases, just to acquaint) myself with your early stuff. And so off we go. I’d never heard this song before I recorded it off of BOB, so I don’t have a lot to say about it other than that I like it.
OK, so maybe not off the best start, but I have faith that we’re going to be chatting a lot in the months and years to come, Elton John.
