  2. Why did Eric quit Twitter?

    Possibly he quit Twitter before Twitter quit him.
  3. We're Ba-a-a-ack!

    Thanks Big Tech! You bunch of pompous, oppressive nitwits inspired the re-opening of the EC message board. ( I hope I didn't break any new message board rules already)

  11. Elton John Top 10 Albums

    Yes, I actually made an error in saying the last 3 songs do nothing for me, because I do like Goodbye. I am pretty lukewarm on Razor Face too. If Razor Face was switched with Holiday Inn and had Goodbye tacked at the end. that would be SOME album side.
  12. Elton John Top 10 Albums

    LC..I have a friend who loves Madman. What I like, I like a lot off this album. I'm lukewarm on Indian Sunset and I know it's a song that most like a lot more than I do. The last three songs from the album do nothing for me. I don't have the numerical ratings with me right now, but I'm guessing that Caribou was probably on the border of becoming a B- rating. "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" is probably in Top 3 favorite songs. What hurts The Fox for me is that it just doesn't have any WOW songs. Seeing that both Sleeping & The One are the bottom two on the C+ group tells me that they may both have been close to at least dropping to average C's.
  13. Elton John Top 10 Albums

    James likes Blue Moves a lot more than I do. And I admittedly like some of those 80's albums more than most fans. I was also surprised that Made In England ended up Honky Chateau. I guess I like it more than I thought.
  14. Elton John Top 10 Albums

    Yes...thank you. Must of had another album in mind. Correction made.
  15. Elton John Top 10 Albums

    Well.....I got very scientific and invented a rating system for myself. Since last posting in this thread, I listened to EVERY song on EVERY studio album, and applied my rating. I rated albums as they were originally released without bonus cuts. Even though they are posted as a Letter Grade, not all same grades are alike, which allows me to rank them in order. So here are MY rankings of all the Elton John studio albums. A+ Goodbye Yellow Brick Road A+ Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player A+ Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy A Made In England A- Honky Chateau A- Elton John B+ Tumblweed Connection B Madman Across The Water B Peach Tree Road B- Too Low For Zero B- Breaking Hearts B- Jump Up B- The Big Picture B- Songs From The West Coast B- Single Man B- 21 at 33 C+ Caribou C+ Wonderful Crazy Night C+ The One C+ Sleeping With The Past C Ice On Fire C The Diving Board C Empty Sky C Leather Jackets C Blue Moves C The Fox C- Rock Of The Westies C- Reg Strikes Back D+ Captain And The Kid F Victim Of Love
  16. AM/FM Trivia

    Yes, a time limit will be imposed. I will extend quiz #2 for three more days (since that was what I posted originally). After that, each quiz will be valid for 5 days. Each Round will consist of 21 quizzes. Who will be the winner of Round 1?
  17. A Quick "Tonight You’re Mine" Endorsement

    Mostly agree with these, though I'm one of those in the camp of liking American As Apple Pie a lot! The Way We Used To Be might be my favorite EC song. Where I seem to be pretty different is that She Remembered never hooked me like everyone else, including Eric.
  18. AM/FM Trivia

    Yes....it seems the rules need to be re-read. Only getting credit for one answer. The Standings after Question #1: Batman 1 James 1 Lew 1 Susie 1 ** Please only answer ONE question and if your'e not participating, wait until the next quiz is posted before commenting on the previous one.
  19. AM/FM Trivia

    Anne....which question is your official guess?
  20. AM/FM Trivia

    You will only get credit for ONE question. If you answer more than one, you are helping someone else out. You answered #5 first, so you get one point for that. You are correct in which questions were answered, and yes #3 is Rain
