Elton and Leon have never sounded better. I heard they might record together, but I wasn't expecting this. I feel like I just ran into two friends I haven't heard from since the 70s. They are better than ever. I look forward to hearing more.

Elton and Leon definitely have good chemistry. The song is catchy and is a different approach from Elton and his recent hits. The only reason for four stars and not five is that Elton should have lead vocals on this track. But figuring Russell wrote the song it makes senses. Still a great song.

Great song!
