Deep Cuts From 1971: “Madman Across The Water”- Elton John. The title track from Elton John’s 1971 Madman Across The Water- like “The Wind” by Cat Stevens that I featured earlier today is a song that over the years has gotten enough airplay that I thought it was a single-but it wasn’t. The songs was written by Elton John lyrics by Bernie Taupin -the Madman Across The Water was my old friend Richard Milhous Nixon. I like to poke fun at Nixon but he was a significant president who had many achievements but of course he had a darkness about him and was a champion hater which in the end got the best of him. Even Nixon realized this in his farewell talk before leaving The White House- “Always remember, others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.”
