On Where Pianos Roam

In the pantheon of Pop Piano Gods of the modern era, Elton John holds his own among such greats as  Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, Nina Simone,  Tori Amos, and a handful of others.  He boasts an enviable catalogue of hits reaching far back into the 1970's when he burst onto the music world with huge sunglasses and a flair all his own. He is another artist and fellow pianist whose work I have admired from a distance.  (I've actually covered only one of his songs, and I didn't even play it on the piano--a song called "American Triangle" that I sang a capella with African drums.)  His distinct sound and style is one I have no desire to copy.  Only Elton does Elton John well.  I am content to bow down at his alter and worship his songs just as millions around the world have. All things considered, I have one very favorite Elton John song, and it is a classic.  It's a sad farewell song called "Daniel", and I loved it from the very first time I heard it.  The lyrics are just so brutal and beautiful all at once.  It's a listing of truths that are heavy and heartbreaking to hold. This week, I wanted to feature an old live performance of this sweet sad song. Ladies and Gents, Daniel .  .  . [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ayolhaLMUI]
