As a kid I didn’t know much about Elton John other than that video he released for “Candle in the Wind.” For some reason I lumped it together with other songs I really despised at the time no real reason. I had no idea it was part of an incredible album from 1973, I thought it was just some weird guy who liked to dress like a French aristocrat from the 1700s. I would later gain appreciation for this song, particularly in the greater context of the album as a whole.
