Reelin’ in the Years – 1992

It's 1992 and I'm 30 years old. Bye bye youth. Hello, old age. That's sort of how I felt. Also, that I had to smarten up and start being mature because, well, 30 is 30. What a joke. I still had so much to learn. At the beginning of the Ph.D. program in Ottawa, I'm wondering... Continue Reading →

Reelin’ in the Years – 1972

It's 1972 and I've completed ten full solar orbits on spaceship Earth. I just realized that I overlooked David Bowie's influential song "Space Oddity" for 1969. When I was seven in '69, "Space Oddity" was too far out for me. I didn't discover that until high school. "Rocket Man" (1972) by Elton John is another... Continue Reading →

Elton John’s – The One (1992) I think this is one of the last really good Elton John songs. It's not quite as memorable, say, as "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" but as the image in the video suggests, that sun is still shining and hasn't set yet.

Elton was a pop phenomenon when I was the ripe young age where pop music meant everything. I was pretty "into" some of his tunes. My aunt is an accomplished pianist (finishing second in a piano competition to none other... Continue Reading →

Wee small hours I think I like the poster for this tune best of all. This song came out in '55, well before I was born. But my parents had lps from this era. And the basement in our house had a swanky old bar that would have fit right in... The thing I like about Sinatra's... Continue Reading →

Elton John – I’ve seen the saucers

I've tried playing this song on the piano and it's not easy. I don't know if it was just the sheet music but it was in one of those strange keys that compelled me to play it a semitone higher. For a long time now I've felt that this is one of the better Elton... Continue Reading →

Mikes 100+ Essential Pop from the 50s to Now!

Back in the saddle. Actually, it's back on a chair. This is the first time in a while I've really sat down in front of my laptop for more than a few minutes. The culprit? A bad cold leading into the Christmas rush, and a bona fide fever just after it. During my malaise I... Continue Reading →
