Ok, so I normally listen to my EJ CDs when I’m driving, but I just happened to turn the radio on this morning when I was taking my daughter to school. And to further the title claim, I don’t normally listen to Majic 102.7, but I just so happened to have the radio tuned to that station, and lo and behold, the DJs were talking about today being Dan Marino’s 50th birthday (my other favorite icon) and how he was going to get a transatlantic birthday greeting from someone…someone who is called sir…and something about the message being a candle in the wind.
Now who could that be?
Well, another lo and behold, and of course it was (a spoofed) Sir Elton John wishing Dan a Happy 50th.
My two favorite icons. Melded together. One degree.
I don’t remember all the words, but I do remember the chorus…
It seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to throw to when the blitz came in
I would’ve liked to have seen you in the Super Bowl
But your bad knees burned out long before your shoulder ever did
A good day, a good day indeed.
