"Nothing" sent me an old favorite. Gather around the piano for a sing-along and wander the golden roads of radio yore. Not sure I did it justice, but I sure had fun. Thanks Noth!

Guyts,
An Excellent collab! I think Elton would love this version. You did an excellent cover-- faithful, yet different. LIke Elton's take on Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds...

But why a cappella? It has an instrument?

Ok, I felt like Nothing's piano was singing along with me and it has a "choral feel" to it...so I said, "Acapella"...I'll revise it smiley Thanks for listening!

I remember listening to a guy cover this in the Quad at Southern the day Harrington crashed the circus truck (also the same day as the infamous bachelor party!) He wasn't nearly as good as you!

Love the harmonies here! I know nothing has been itching to get a good cover of this. Wish I could sing. I'd have done it just like this!

I think I was in that truck, Vap. I said, "I don't think you can clear that bridge..." I lmao when he crashed into it and got stuck. What a noise! That was also the last day I flew teetor board (I opted not to throw the double-back) and my last circus exhibition.

Thanks Boris and drew...and jolo and claus...and dodds and granz! 4arms, Jay, DD, thanks gents. JD, Bass, J0j0, Dave, Easy, Smurf, Cheins, Cicero, Lili...cheers!

I'm with vaperman, if I'd sung this it would sound just like this!!! hahahahaha smiley

Wonderful.

The first time I saw Elton was in Vegas just a couple of years ago at The Colosseum (built for Celine) in Caesar's Palace. I had the good fortune of timing it not long after he had begun alternating gigs there with Celine and on that night his original arranger, Paul Buckmaster, was on the synth and 2nd keys. A fantastic show. The place, the sound, the visuals, wow, what a great show!!!

Anyway, you've brought the live touch to this that is so vital. Enjoyed.

thx Bec...I've wondered what it would be like to see Elton in concert(then and now...classic Elton vs contemporary) Sounds like he's still putting on a great show. I need to hit Vegas soon!
