High School Revisited: Musica, pt. IV

MEMORY: I owe a lot to my dad's record collection. In addition to The Who and The Beatles, he loved Elton John. He'd often sing along to songs from Madman Across the Water and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road  and I sat there watching him in awe, seeing this part of him come unlocked. It was a rare and wonderful sight to see a play-by-the-rules attorney dance around to this flamboyant singer-songwriter. Before long, I fell in love with Elton too.

Only later, as an adult, did I realize how prolific and influential he really was as I rarely found a song of his I didn't find totally original and memorable.

Honky Cat is the one I loved to dance around to in my room the most. And I still do.
