Song of the Week: "Tiny Dancer"

The past three weeks literally have been a whirlwind. From starting a new job in NYC to catching at least two shows a week, it's been insane, but at the same time one of my most inspiring months yet. Not only did I get to cover the legendary Zootopia concert and interview some amazing bands (see me interviewing Fergie above!!!), but I have become even more convinced that this whole music thing is what I absolutely have to continue and pursue to no end.

Whether it was interviewing Mat Kearney on his tour bus this past Tuesday and getting a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road, or seeing a band perform live as they convert every person in the room as fans, it's just been one of those light bulb moments.

What better song then, to feature than Elton John's "Tiny Dancer?" Every time I hear it I think of my all-time favorite film "Almost Famous." And, amazingly enough, the past few weeks I have been living out the movie myself.

Almost Famous is beyond awesome! And that scene is great. Hope you're enjoying the life of a music journalist. ;)

I love "Tiny Dancer" and love "Almost Famous" even more. Nicely done.
