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.

    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....
