I’m a huge fan of cover songs. Often times I find myself thinking how much better the cover is than the original. This time, I don’t know that it’s better (Elton’s version is quite the classic) but it is definitely good. Even if you aren’t a fan of bluegrass or the banjo you have to appreciate the skills here. Vocals aren’t bad either.
First things first. I stole that title. Plain and simple, in all matters of plagiarism and theft, I stole that title from Bike Snob NYC and I’m not sorry I did.
But, in my defense, I simply couldn’t come up with anything better than what he did. Here’s why:
The New York Times published this Op-Ed piece by Daniel Duane. I avoided reading it for a day or two simply because of the title. I mean, WTF? What part of that title even sounds right and isn’t the least bit offensive? Does the fact that it is posed as a question make it any more ‘politically correct’? So, after reading it I gave it some time to digest. Each passing minute I kept rolling it over in my head until I got to the point that I just lost it. Thinking, “Holy shit, what in the hell are people thinking!?!” And that’s when I ran across BSNYC’s post regarding the same Op-Ed piece. No matter how hard I could try, there isn’t a better way to get my point across than using his words. So there you go. Go read it here. Now.
