The Band: Elton John
The Song: "Tiny Dancer"
Where I heard it first: It's a classic! I don't think I can even put my finger on the first time I heard it.
Why it’s been stuck in my head: There's something about singing this song at the top of your lungs during your commute that just makes everything seem better. Elton John is one of those people who just cranked out amazing song after amazing song and, in this generation, in our effort to be cool and hipster and listening to bands that no one's ever heard of, we forget about the great classics. Sure, there are classic rock songs that are great too, but there's something about this song that every time you hear it, whether it's in the car or at a karaoke bar, you can't help but sing along. And that's what is so great about this song. I listened to it in my car on the way to work this morning and couldn't help but smile.
Why I recommend it to you, our listeners: Roll down your windows. Blast "Tiny Dancer". Sing along. Instant happiness. I dare you to try it!
