Earth, Water, Air, Fire - Today's Musical Earworms

Covering the compass today with the songs which are stuck in my head.

For Air and Earth:

Dust In The Wind by Todd Rundgren (1972)


For Fire and Water:

Fire and Rain by James Taylor (1970)

..although the Tim Hardin version is good, too.


These are two very similar songs, written less than 2 years apart. I was faintly surprised that the Rundgren song was later, as the Runt was often a groundbreaker in styles, sentiment and sound engineering.

 But you can segue from one song to the other in your head with hardly a pause.
