Maggie’s Pick 7.21.14: ‘Tiny Dancer’ by Elton John

“Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand”

Being a musician, there are some songs I just like because they acknowledge musical things, whether that is music culture on the coast of California in 1971 or a cliche repetition of chords. I also like dancing, and this song = classic.

“Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today”
