"On such a timeless flight..."

This live performance of Elton John's "Rocket Man" is far and away my favorite version of the song. Performed at Wembley Stadium in the U.K. during 1984's "Breaking Hearts" tour, John's vocals are spot on and Davey Johnstone's guitar playing is absolutely stellar. The section from 4:32 to 5:45 will give you goose-bumps!
