I Don’t Wanna Go On With You Like That (Elton John) - day 44
Anything that needs to be said about the genius amongst us named Elton John has likely been said already when I wrote about his other monstrous hits in past countdowns. However, in case you missed it, this man is one with the music he creates.
We all know of the career that spans five decades or more, but along the way, as his sound changed with the times, he gave us duds and he gave us spectacular one-offs like today’s jam from 1988, I Don’t Wanna Go On With You Like That. The repeat-beat stirs you into action from the start of the song right through to the finish. The lyrics don’t mean anything specific to me but I do like how he says, “well If you wanna spread it around sista, that’s just fine..” and that always made laugh.
