That reminds me, Junior year, they used to play music in the cafe all the time, so I gave the guy that plays the music a CD with Beautiful Day and Rocket Man, and he played it almost daily because no one else brought in CDs...

Have you heard the Gimme Gimme's punk version of Rocket Man? Hilarious.

Oh my, I don't think it does Elton's version justice. It was an amusing listen though...

Well... if you're an Elton John fan, I'm sure you'll hate this version.

But these guys, they're called Me First And The Gimme Gimmes. All they do is punk covers of the unlikeliest of songs. eg.: Uptown Girl, Over The Rainbow, It's Raining On Prom Night.


Good night!
