I don’t know if there’s any better way to start the weekend than to do it with an Elton John tune ringing in your ears. James Corden’s latest Carpool Karaoke is a real treat for any of you who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. One of the strongest memories I have of childhood is being in my friend Kathy’s house after school one day and listening to Benny and the Jets from Elton’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album. The cover remains firmly imprinted in my mind, and Benny and the Jets remains one of my favourite songs of all time.
Driving to work recently, I found myself immersed in James Corden’s story. He was interviewed on the WTF Podcast and you can listen by following this link. He sounded like a genuinely nice guy. Someone raised in a Salvation Army family who has had an interesting rise to fame.
I’ve had a very demanding week at work and am really looking forward to rest. Just wish the house would clean itself! I hope your weekend is one to savour. Enjoy. 🙂
