Rocket Man:The Fastbacks
Artist: The Fastbacks
Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!
Song Notes: I am so not a fan of Elton John. Seriously. If you had a continuum of "Elton John Fan" and "Not Elton John Fan", I would be squarely on the "Not" side. However, I have to admit that this actually is a really good song, and it took The Fastbacks to show me that. This is from Truth, Corrosion and Sour Bisquits, a b-sides/rarities compilation that just came out; it's actually one of the few rarities comps that actually works as a stand-alone record, as well. It works as a good introduction to The Fastbacks for anyone who's so inclined, as well. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
