Elton John – Benny and The Jets

I was reading an interview with Micheal Stipe today and he described Benny and The Jets as seeming “like it came from another galaxy.” This really resonated with me as a great description, as it does sound otherworldly and kind of beguiling. It’s almost like it should be a David Bowie song rather than one by Elton John. While he has become something of a caricature recently and I don’t have much love for the rest of his music, I never skip track this when it comes on my MP3 player.
