Yes, hello, after more than a month, I’m back with a Music Monday post. Hopefully, this is the start of more regular posting. Today’s edition features Rocket Man, the original (although the video is not the original) Elton John classic from his 1972 album, Honky Château. I’ve chosen the William Shatner version, from his performance at the 1978 Saturn Awards, as the cover.
For good measure, I’ll include the absolutely fantastic Stewie Griffin version, from And the Wiener is…. Meg believes that having made flag girl, she’ll be cool. Stewie responds, “Come talk to me sometime, sweetheart, I know what it takes to be cool.“
I’ll also include the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes’ punk cover, live from Pinkpop Festival, 2009.
