Rocket Man - Elton John & Ryan Adams

"Mixing the heartfelt angst of a singer/songwriter with the cocky brashness of a garage rocker, Ryan Adams is at once one of the few artists to emerge from the alt-country scene to achieve mainstream commercial success and the one who most strongly refused to be defined by the genre, leaping from one spot to another stylistically while following his increasingly prolific muse." Ahhhh...a musically promiscuous musician!

♫I don’t remember were we wild and young
All that faded into memory
I feel like somebody I don’t know
Are we really who we used to be
Am I really who I was

The lights will draw you in
And the dark will bring you down
And the night will break your heart
But only if you’re lucky now

Waiting outside while you find your keys
Like bags of trash in the blackening snow
City of neon and toes that freeze
We’ve got nothing and nowhere to go
We’ve got nothing and nowhere.♫


  1. Ray and I listen to Elton John albums every week, the real vinyl ones. "Madman Across the Water" is our favorite. Great music, Annie. xoxo

  2. Elton is good...don't get me wrong. But in this scenario...I am so disappointed when he starts singing. He and Bernie created the song...so cudo's is due for sure...but when Elton starts singing, I want him to hush...and put Ryan back on. I know, I know...I should tsk tsk myself, and I do. But just can't help how I feel!

  3. Gosh I love this only you Hon. MP can do this I missed so much I'm back to stay annd I will catch up with everything this weekend...I knew something was missing...I bet you use to be the Queen Bee...

  4. @ Ben - I like Candle in the Wind :) And and and and...

    @ Lorraine - So glad you're back. It's always pretty empty here in the music zone. Ha! No, I was never Queen Bee :)

  5. But you know this was a huge hit for Elton John, I feel right that he sang out of place or not

  6. Nice blog, I stumbled over here by accident and I'm glad I did. I love Ryan Adams. Two got me through a rough patch a few years ago.
    I could listen to Elton play the piano forever and ever, amen.
    Looking forward to browsing your archives.
