Elton John and Stevie Wonder Duet – Finish Line

Was expecting a mediocre filler track with a harmonica solo. Wrong! This is a really solid duet by two legends and longtime collaborators. I’m impressed!

It is a nice song and a worthy collaboration.

All we need is for Stevie to just reach the 'Finish Line' and complete and release that new album/albums he's apparently been working on forever smile wink.

Elton sounds like a pub singer these days.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I like it . Thanks for sharing.

An Elton sidenote, is that he has his first big radio hit in years outside the Adult Comtemporary format with his duet with Dua Lipa. I am sure this is fueled by her popularity right now, but these collaborations between youth and the aged don't usually do so well. These new songs have me looking forward to seeing Elton in concert next year.

He does sound awful on it. Stevie still sounds decent though.

Elton lost his voice live years ago, but its worrying on a studio song like this.

He has nothing to prove though, and his boxset recently was a nice surprise for die hards.

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

I'll take any new music with Stevie on it and I gotta say..this is a really nice surprise, he still sounds great.

Watching that interview worried me a bit, though. Stevie lost a lot of wheight? I hope it's not due to any health issues.

About a year or 2 ago, I read that Stevie became a vegan.

Ah okay...well, good for him, I guess?

Anyway, really loving that song, listened to it four times in a row in my car...all we need now is that new album, Stevie!!!

He had a kidney transplant a couple years back, but he gained quite a bit of weight in the 2000's and I think he's just living healthier. Hes probably just back to his healthy weight. He seems to be in good health, releasing and performing new singles, and he has his annual House Full of Toys benefit show in LA next month.

But a damn good one at his age.

ANd knowing what kinda life he lived...

I read his biography... my god !!!

Talking about drugs alcohol, sex etc...

The Rolling Stones or any other band are pussies compared to good old Dwight.
