Jessica Bell and I have teamed up for the A-Z blogging challenge this year to talk about our musical muses - a band/artist or song that has inspired, or affected us in some way.
With all the glam rock I've been posting this past month, you might be somewhat shocked to see Elton John's (Goodbye) YELLOW BRICK ROAD on my list of influential songs. Then again, maybe not - Elton does have a flair for the theatrical.
Truth be told, I like a lot of Elton, and only picked Yellow Brick Road because it makes me think of The Wizard of Oz, a favorite movie of my youth. I also loved the Muppets...which is why I chose THIS version of the song off YouTube.
Yeah, I know, it's a bit of a cheat. The song is actually called Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, but it's been a long month, friends. Surely you'll cut me some slack.
Got a fave "Y" song? Bet it's Yellow Submarine. Prove me wrong.
