Song of the Day – “Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy” – Elton John

John often flirted with the country sound. He and Bernie Taupin used it for comedic effect in “Texas Love Song” on Don’t Shoot Me…

He went back and forth between country and rock for this title song from his first of two albums from 1975. (Rock of the Westies was released only five months later – isn’t that incredible?)
