He was a Rocket Man

William Shatner's oddball performance in 'Boston Legal' brings to mind an earlier period of oddball Shatner performances, and I don't mean in Star Trek. Here's one: Blair Anderson has plucked out a gem in which Shatner almost sings, and almost makes Elton John musical.

Well, sort of. Click the link and scroll down to view.

  1. This one's a classic, alright.

    But picture yourself, on a boat, on a river - with tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

    Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl ... with kalEIDoscope eyes.

    Yep, he's also performed Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Also Bob Dylan's classic "Mr Tambourine Man" on The Transformed Man.

    Only after seeing this video, are you able to fully appreciate Stewie's rendition of Rocket Man.

  2. Thanks for the link, Sam - the first time I heard 'Lucy in the Sky' by our beloved Mr Shatner I laughed until I tears streamed down my face. It still makes me smile just thinking about it.

    P.S. Prime are re-running all the Star Trek and Next Generation episodes, Midday on Sundays .
