Ok, I have two songs I keep hearing on the radio that I can't find titles for, and one of those I can't even give you artist or general era.

The first one I'm pretty sure is Dame Elton John and the chorus is something about the New York Times saying G-d is dead...

The second song I want to say is late 70's early 80's. Lyrics are something about you're crying now. BUT...it has an awesome sax riff.

Any clue, music people?

Yes, that would be it. I had no idea where it was in EJ's catalogue, so I really didn't feel like digging through his archives:)

I don't know why, but I've been in an EJ mood of late.

that might do it. A certain BF ran off to Vegas this week and Oestara is really kicking up the emotions.

He'd better, or I'm going to have to go kick his ass.

As it's got about the best Sax Riff ever put into a Pop/Rock tune.


Windin' your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything
This city desert makes you feel so cold.
It's got so many people but it's got no soul
And it's taking you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it had everything

You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're tryin'
You're tryin' now
Another year and then you'll be happy
Just one more year and then you'll be happy
But you're cryin'
You're cryin' now

Way down the street there's a lad in his place
He opens the door he's got that look on his face
And he asks you where you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about anything

He's got this dream about buyin' some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he'll settle down there's a quiet little town
And forget about everything

But you know he'll always keep movin'
You know he's never gonna stop movin
Cus he's rollin'
He's the rollin' stone

And when you wake up it's a new mornin'
The sun is shinin' it's a new morning
You're goin'
You're goin' home.

Hallelujah. That's been bugging me almost as much as tracking down "Sunset Grill" by one of the Eagles I believe. But now I know and can go grab:)

I'm so sad that Levon was found through googling. It is one of my favorite EJ songs (and considering I am a huge EJ fan) I could have answered right away...but I didn't, so I will sit here and mope about it.
