Old man , look at my life;

I'm a lot like you were.

 

That song really lays it on the line.......

 

Now here's a strange duet.   Elton John  &  Leon Russell

 

"Never To Old, (To Hold Somebdy)" .

 

But strange has a  way of working out great.  Two top

talents sharing the tune together.

And speaking of great tunes,  most people don't know that

Leon Russell was a top writter of songs that were sung by

others.  Two songs by  The Carpenter's stick in my mind. 

'A Song For You",   And the awesome  "Superstar" ..

Both of those songs were recorder by many other legends.

But I have a big place in my heart for  The Carpenter's......

Karen's voice was so beautiful.  What a shame to have lost

her at such an early age.   :-(

Darkness    by    Leonald Cohen

 

Leonard passed away in Dec.2016.  He leaves behind many

songs that were copied  (or covered) by other artist.

 

His most popular song was "Hallelujah" to be coverd.

I have heard it many time on American Idol, The X Factor,

and The Voice.  It's on my top ten list of the greatest songs

I know.  Not an easy list to compile.....

 

RIP

That reminds me of a saying,  "I don't want to be a 'grown up',

Have you even seen grownups.  They have problems.  I don't

want to have problems".

=================================================

Now for the next choice song for the oldies .................................

 

It's Hip To Be Square    BY    Huey Lewis and the News........

 

( but  goodies, that we are)
