________________________________

There isn't another actor who could have pulled off this wonderful live performance, delivering a dramatic reading of the lyrics to Rocket Man — not just with a straight face, but with a powerful performance that gives the song more meaning and more emotional power than it ever had before.

He took it all so seriously that WE end up taking it seriously, both his performance and the song.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.


______________ William Shatner "Rocket Man"

Equally impressive is this live performance by Elton John. I love it.

You betcha!

And he was so wonderfully serious and earnest through the whole song, even when he was watching superimposed images of himself as they sang portions of the song.

Brilliant! Laughing
