Default Re: Your Song

none of us have ever sat around with The Man and listened and watched him noodling around and hashing out a sound he's happy with while trying out a now song, especially one that is not his .. I would imagine that he would find it a bit of a task to get the phrasing to sound like "Lightfoot" as his cadence and syntax are very original and Elton John/Bernie Taupin don't have that 'sound. His speaking voice is as I have heard it on different broadcasts - same "Lightfoot" sound as per my Canadian ear.
I still have to say that it's Lightfoot.
