Day 253: Song for Guy, Elton John

I remember falling in love with this piece by Elton John when I first heard it as a child (released in 1978). I just love the piano chord progression with the clever use of synthesizer and the gentle castanet percussion sound. This is not an entirely musical piece for it ends with the single and simple line “Life isn’t everything”. Amen to that.

Interestingly, my youngest daughter absolutely loves this song.
