Last year this show took Thanksgiving off, but I put out a mini episode talking about how I made it a point to listen to a specific Elton John live album every year. In that spirit, I thought this year's November holiday would be a great excuse to dive further into my love of Elton -- and I brought along a friend/friend of the show Ben Rathert, whose mutual enjoyment of this artist formed a bedrock of our friendship! Ben and I put together a list of Elton favs for you all that hopefully serves as a solid overview of this iconic music legend -- and may have surprises in store even for more serious fans.
For complete songs, listen to our Spotify playlist for the episode.
