60 Years On - Elton John (1970)
This was the song that opened Live In Australia W/ The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the first album by Sir Elton I ever owned. It haunted me for years, with its message of fear against aging. It is even more powerful on his US debut, when, at only 23, Elton sings the song with youthful conviction that rivals the Who's early singles. However, he accomplishes it with vibrant strings instead of distorted guitars and explosions (Not that that's a bad thing.. I Adore The Who) One up Reg!
