And now I'm reminded
By feelings so strong
Of Bernie Taupin's lyric
To Sir Elton's song
Can you say the hardest word
This series has become a but of a struggle a lot earlier than I thought it would partly because I have exhausted my initial list and also because there are well over a dozen songs which could have featured in this series but have already graced these pages.
Also I haven't had the time or the inclination to sit down properly and come up with some more thoughts.
So I am at a stage when I come across a namecheck whilst listening to a song and I have a song by the artist it is going on.
S-O-R-R-Y is a song from The Proclaimers 2007 album Life With You which I like to think is about Tony Blair
This wouldn't necessarily have been my first choice for an Elton John song but Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting and Benny and the Jets were not at my disposal
The Proclaimers - S-O-R-R-Y
Elton John -Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
The Fall - Just Step S'WayReplyDelete
Dr. Hook - Everybody's Making It Big But Me
The Bloodhound Gang - Take The Long Way Home
Eminem - My Dad's Gone Crazy...
...which I'm sure is what my son will think once he's old enough to take stock of his old man's record collection.
