Theme: My Birthday (1973)
There were a lot of hits off this album in 1973. The only thing that stopped them from releasing more singles was that Elton had a new record coming out in 1974 and they didn't want this album to get in the way of it. "Harmony" "All the Young Girls Love Alice" and this track were left out of rotation here in the US so they could hype Caribou with "Don't Let the Sun go Down on Me." This is my favorite track.
Happy birthday to one of the most fabulously flamboyant frontmen of all-time, Mr. Reginald Dwight! If you've never heard this tune, give it a whirl. Truly epic. I'd LOVE to hear him tear into this live.
