Musings From A Musical Mind

Your Song

My generation grew up with the music of Elton John.  His music was and still is what I think of when I remember junior high and high school days.  And no matter what you think of him personally, you would have to agree that you also know his music well – and his is a talent that has stood the test of time.

I have many favorite Elton John songs – not the least of which is one of his first hits, the song “Your Song”.  It is hard to “cover” his songs – as Elton’s voice is very unique – but I think we may have found someone who can do one of them justice.  Last night on American Idol – Casey Abrams gave a very tender rendition of this wonderful song and before youtube pulls it off for copyright infringement for the show – I hope if you did not see it last night live – you can watch it here.

Enjoy and God Bless  (and vote for Casey!)

  1. I agree with you about Elton John, always a favorite. I have too many to list, I think, of EJ Faves. LOL This one is one of them. Not too fond of this performance, though. I mean, it’s okay and I applaud him for taking on such a great song. Still, I’ll stick to Elton’s version. 🙂

    • No one can sing it like Elton – but Casey is really terrific – and can sing anything – this shows the tender side. I’m rooting for him – he’s pretty incredible, have you seen him sing and play the string bass? Wow.
