Elton John is the host AND the musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live. Judging from these promos, we might just want to eat a napple and call it a week.
NBC couldn’t even pony up for the royalties to the estate of Boots Randolph for “Yakety Sax” for this? They had to settle for “Wacky English Chase Music” from “Free Fun Production Music Volume 12.”
Goodbye Yellow Brick Host
The Circle of Life is almost complete
Don’t Let the Pun Go Down on Me
Don’t Go Breakin’ My Weekend
I Guess That’s Why They Call It Hosting and Being The Musical Guest on Saturday Night Live (I think he’s lost his touch with the snappy titles guys)
Candle in the Worst
Also, Candle in the Worst ’97.
Saturday Night’s Alright With The Fact You Won’t Be Watching This Weekend
Levon (this show) far behind.
“If Taupin didn’t write it, I’m not gonna memorize it” – Elton John
“Fuck that guy. If he can’t be bothered to memorize 3 lines, let’s put the cue cards over to the left of the camera so he looks like an asshole.” – cue card guy
“Elton, it has been an honor to have you here all week.”
“Well, you got the ‘has been” part right.”
Obviously it DOESN’T get better.
So how about Elton is a flamboyant English man who wears silly costumes
Perfect, now for the next sketch
Elton is a flamboy fuck that’s all I got
Do you think there will be any fighting on the set? I hear that’s a pretty good night for it.
I hear it’s only alright.
This is killing in online England, Gabe. KILLING.
Except over there, they call it Saturday Night Lorries.
The first ever piece of music I truly owned myself as a child was a yellow cassette tape of Elton John hits I claimed for my own from my mothers car.
That man and his music shaped the first few years of my musical life until my brother-in-law gave me a Nirvana album when he started dating my sister. I could have been so, so, so different…. (read: fabulous)
Wait, is this a rerun?
Gabe, how about you review the sketch where he makes out with Andy Samberg now and get it over with?
What a Bummer!
