I Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues

Posted on Mar 26, 2011 in Uncategorized | One Comment

Don’t worry, I’m not depressed (quite the opposite!). This past Sunday I saw Elton John in concert. Before the show, I had to warn my friend/concert bestie Chris that I was going to freak out when Sir Elton plays “I Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues.” And that I would be singing along VERY LOUDLY (more loudly than normal) and might be grabbing him. Why? Because that song is one of my favorite songs of all time.

When I was in college, I went through an Elton John phase. I listened to his three (yes THREE) greatest hits albums. And then I was heartbroken (stupid boys). So I would put “I Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues” on repeat and just sit on my bed and sing along. I know, I’m such a girl. The weird thing is, when I hear that song now, I don’t think about that particular boy. I just think about how that song can bring out so much emotion in me. Every time I hear it, I want to sing along at the top of my lungs.

So on Sunday night, the song started. I did indeed grab my friend and started singing along. I’ll admit, I got some looks from the people around me, since I was REALLY into it. But that’s what a good song should do. Bring something out in you, good or bad (hopefully good).

Since a lot of you might not know the song, I give you for your listening pleasure, Sir Elton (I’ll admit the video is a little cheesy nowadays but the song is still gold):

May you never have the blues, but if you do, just hit play.

XO, Elizabeth

    “Someone Save My Life Tonight” is the Elton John song I sing at the top of my lungs.
