Midday Music Thursday: William Shatner performs ‘Rocket Man’

Could it be anything else as far as music?

This performance, which is a tribute to Bernie Taupin, was at the 1978 Saturn Awards ceremony. The odd performance has been discussed for many years (“Was he goofing? Was he serious?”) and has been spoofed by animated characters over time.

Anyway, what better way to cap off Star Trek month than William Shatner performing “Rocket Man?”

Or is it “Rock it, man?”

See you tomorrow, which is Dirt Day.
