Elton John: Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me

The cold weather and the onset of winter, with its shorter days, reminds me of this pop classic. Elton John sings "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me," in a modern performance from Montserrat; you can compare this more mature performance from an earlier one from 1977 here. Elton John remains one of the greatest pop singers and writers, able to tap into the modern sensibilities; this is one of his best songs. It is a single from John's 1974 album "Caribou."
