    Loved it! I’d also like to hear a version without the fast beats — the subject of the song lends itself to a more somber, reflective mood.

    @QJ201—agreed… actually the PSB might have made something more interesting out of this. It’s kind of listenable, I’d be somewhat remotely interested in hearing a dance remix.

    But how does Elton J sing any differently here than anything else he’s sung? Doesn’t sound to me like that much of a challenge for him.

    @Randy: Bingo! On every verse, I was just waiting for the Beach Boys to appear, singing those words in exactly the same tune. It sounds like an electronic version of that song with the words modified.

    Big BLBL fan here, loved his EP last year.
    Loved his duet with Ana Matronic as well.
    But not a fan of the drum’n-bass-ish background though.
    Alas, a duet with Elton is a true acknowledgement of BLBL talent!

    Alas, alas, alas…. the whingers are out. Problem with the modern musical scale is there is only so many notes and cords that ultimately can be used and writers are influenced, sometimes indirectly/subconsciously by what’s already out there.
    Well done Rod – you’ve pissed several people off and made many, many more impressed by your talent. Keep on doing what you are doing and let the ones that don’t matter not matter.

    Thank you. I’ve become such a huge fan of Bright Light Bright Light. He has such a beautiful voice. I do prefer the tracks with just the piano to the dance remixes but I love it all.
