Όπως πολλοί άλλοι, έχω μια αδυναμία στα άλμπουμ που ο Elton John κυκλοφόρησε στα ’70s. Ως εκ τούτου, το Songs From The West Coast [2001], μια επιστροφή του καλλιτέχνη στις ρίζες του, ήταν για μένα όπως και για πολλούς άλλους, μια ευχάριστη έκπληξη.
Από το άλμπουμ μου άρεσε περισσότερο αυτό το τραγούδι.

Like many others, I am especially fond of the albums Elton John released in the ’70s. Therefore, Songs From The West Coast [2001], marking the artist’s return to his roots was for me, like for many others, a pleasant surprise.
This is my favorite song from the album.

❝ I’ll take a rainy day
To make a champagne shower
Poach some horn and tusk
To build an ivory tower
Been to Philadelphia
The day it was closed
I walked to New Orleans
Down a Louisiana road
The skeletons they hung from the bushes and the trees
But not a skull among ’em said boo to me
In a time of wine and cheap cigars
I’m on top of the world
Top of the world Ma
Look Ma no hands
Look Ma ain’t life grand
I’m a super power, I’m a handy man
Didn’t I turn out, didn’t I turn out to be
Everything you wanted Ma
Ain’t you proud of me
It takes a silver tongue
To have the Midas touch
Not your alchemist
Making gold from rust
Been down in Roswell
When the Martians came
I sailed to Mandeville
Across Lake Pontchartrain



Stay Safe!
