Keeping the Speed Real Slow

I mis-quoted an Elton John song in my last post, and I realized the Elton John tags could totally be taken the wrong way if the reader did not know WTH I was on about. It's almost from one of the greatest Elton John songs ever, Harmony, but I always twist it from "You're not unlucky knowing me," because growing up I didn't hear the "un," and I came up with an entire story based this song, which is something I used to be able to do with songs that came out back in my day.

If you've got three minutes, and want to go visit a place in my head brought on by a song that was big before I could walk, here's a little karaoke Harmony:

And if that came off as depressing, here's rarity from 1984 that I enjoyed too much for it to last on radio, Who Wears These Shoes:

Well, thanks to this, I now have "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" stuck in my punkin haid, where it will most likely rattle around for the rest of the day. I blame you. But I have to go do my laundry now.

So there!

D'oh! Yeah, I forgot the unfortunate side effects of exposure to Elton John. If it helps any now I've got that one stuck in my head too, but what's worse is George Michael keeps introducing him and the crowd goes wild, and...this is going to be a vicious cycle.

Amy LaVere! Isn't she neat? There's a buddy of mine on LJ who introduced me to her music, and said not only is she nice but that guitar bit can drive out the Elton John earworms. Okay, I added that last part. It works!
