I remember when this came out, there was a DJ on WBAI in New York who took the ending of this song and put it on a tape loop. He would let it loop for, like, 20 or 30 minutes at a clip. It was  . . . amazing.

between 8 Track and CD you missed cassette tape, you just aren't a true Elton John fan if you don't have them all{#Cheesygrin}

Broken ankle, trip to ER, and workman's comp—clearly that "smoke-break" he had in his car at lunchtime was more than the usual Marlboro Reds he usually smoked.  

This one's for you Wade—not the cleverest Rocket-Man out there.

This was one of the first singles I bought, and I still love it decades later. It was fitting for the time, in which the 'space race' was a recurrent theme. Our Reg sure knows how to spin a toon. It does help that he's been Watford FC through-and-through from childhood, and is now life president of the club. As we 'Orns chanted, mantra-like, in the club's 80s glory days: "Elton John's Taylor-made army!".

Apologies to innocents abroad to whom the arcane world of lower-league English football is as familiar as particle physics.
