This is ‘Your Song’

25 Mar

The bitch is back! In honor of Elton John’s 64th birthday I thought it would only be fitting to share a video of him on his special day. Also I just really love his music : ) And this one is my fave. I <3 Sir Elton John; and have been listening to his music ever since I can remember. I would seriously think about giving an arm and leg to go to one of his concerts. hehe. Maybe this is another bucket list item? As a child, my parents, brother and I frequently went on small cruises on the back dirt roads of my home county in Oklahoma, jammin’ to Classic Rock music while eating an ice cream sandwich with the windows rolled down on those warm summer nights. Good times : )

 

One of the funnest songs I ever heard on the radio during my childhood years was ‘Tight Rope’ by Leon Russell. Even till this day I do not know if there is a music video for the song, but everytime I hear it playing I imagine the video I would have done for it. And maybe I will do it some day when I have a piano in my possession as well as Charlie Chaplin costume on hand ; ) It was not until just a few years ago that I grew knowledge of the friendship between Elton John and Leon Russell. Just made me love Elton more, as well as Leon. These two men have now teamed up together and are asking for the public to create their next music video for their single ‘Hey Ahab’. Best of luck to the contestants.

From the words of one of my college instructors, “If no one said they loved you today, I do.” Happy Friday!
