I love Elton John but Jesus I cannot understand what he is saying sometimes.

    Like in the lyrics for Island Girl, I had no idea what he was saying after "he wants to take you from the racket boss." I thought he was saying, "He wants to take you down the kolzenschlaas," and I don't even speak German.

    :cwl: Elton was a genius until after "Blue Moves" then he began his slow, inexorable crawl toward turning into Liza Minelli.

    :cwl:

    I'm 50....:bigcry:

    RH, I'm not all that upset about turning 34 in real life. Turning 30 was so horrible for me I wanted to blow my mind up but every birthday after that has been, "wgas?"

    bob, I'm 32 and love that song. I listen to music that came out before my grandparents were born, so I'm guessing I'm a real fossil. :D

    You're original post made me laugh out loud, great observation. :up:


    Here's my faahvorite Elton song....

    [video=youtube;mOHLQg4VfqE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOHLQg4VfqE[/video]

    It sounds like at the beginning he says "In my Berlin sleeve". :wtf:
