Continuing with the second CD I listened to on the latest trip, Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player by Elton John. This is a part of the 5-CD set I bought at Wal-Mart covering Elton John's first five hit albums.
The big hits "Daniel" and "Crocodile Rock" are on it, but there were a lot of others that could also have been big hits. It was a pleasure to hear all the songs you usually won't hear on radio. Being a teacher, I liked "Teacher, I Need You" about a school boy crush. Definitely a "Don't Stand So Close to Me" kind of a song. "Elderberry Wine" is always a favorite.
This was John's 6th studio album and his first to hit #1 in the United States and Canada.
