    Hey thanks, Capt Jeff! 
     
    Elton John’s early stuff was catchy with really fun piano work. But it is definitely a crazy song that does not make much sense to me… But  just for fun, if we want to give it a theological twist, maybe I would stretch it and say that a few of the lyrics — “Take me to the Pilot of your soul” — I can only say that as a Catholic Christian, I’d have to say that Jesus is the Pilot of my soul, I’m only the co-pilot.  Glad your flying with Christ, Capt Jeff!
