Anyone who reads my blog knows I love the music of the 70’s. Ah, the 70’s were the only years for music in my mind and I love going back and revisiting the songs of yesteryear, which in my mind, is not that far away.
The definition of denial, I know.
Elton John continues to be a music celebrity now but in the 70’s, his hits were on everyone’s lips.
One song that perhaps had more depth than you first interpreted is Rocket Man.
As you watch this video, I think you will sense the song is more about the average man, and the sacrifices he makes and possibly grew up watching his father make.
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine AM
And I’m gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It’s lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight
Thanks for reading, and watching. This video post is made with a dedication to Terry in Florida who shares my love of the 70’s music. Rock on Terry!
