What started with Michelle and Eric talking about their love of Prince turned into a week of music themed posts for many of the UCF. I had several pieces that I was going to post, but just didn't find the time this week. So, instead of Friday cat blogging, I thought I would jump in with a tune or two that I wanted to share.
I am a huge Elton John fan. Not just his performing, but the artistic abilities of both him and Bernie Taupin. The lyrics that Bernie pens are some of the best ever put on paper, and combined with Reg's musical talent they are are unbeatable.
Here then are two of my favourite Elton/Bernie offerings.... The first being performed live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchastra in Sydney. I had a tape of the whole concert, but it was lost in one of the moves...I am always on the lookout for it on cd..so if anyone happens to find one let me know...The other is from 1970, when Elton's voice was pure and well, untired.
