Anybody else convolve Elton John's "Beyond the Yellow Brick Road" with Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush"?
I mean, they're both about gold. Sort of.
They both mention replacements. One a replacement for a lover, and the other a soldier.
Neil Young's is a lot more poignant. The line "and I felt like getting high" always gets a big round of applause at his concerts but it's one of the most tragic lines in rock and roll.
