Is it humanly possible to not sing along with "Benny and the Jets"? Or at least refrain from saying "B-B-Benny" quietly under your breath? I say it can't be done.
If you like Elton's song, you gotta check out TV Girl's similarly-named track. It's a sunny, little slice of pop. With a chugging beat, doo-wop chorus and So-Cal lyrics, the band captures the fun of the original, without being too derivative. OK, towards the end, there's an echo of "Benny, Benny," but that just feels right.
