Wednesday's Flashback

Sorry for the late post, everyone. It has been a busy writing day! I heard this song on the radio this afternoon and found myself singing along to it. I remember way back when and this was the #1 song in America. I have the single and I played it to death. Nostalgia gripped me today and I dug out that old 45 and played it again. I have it on CD of course, but there is something about those old vinyl records that I am still in love with. I love to play my records. I remember when I was shopping for a new stereo a few years ago and I told the boy at Sears who was showing them to me that I needed one with a turntable. He looked at me like I was from another planet!

Elton John and Kiki Dee created a classic here. This is one of the most played songs on radio of all time and most everybody knows the words to it. Whether you're old enough to remember it or not, you know it. I can recall seeing Elton on The Muppet Show once and he sang this as a duet with Miss Piggy. Sometime I'll find that and post it! Ha ha.

So here it is. Enjoy! And feel free to sing along. I know you will anyway...

Still pretty cool, eh?
