I agree, Maj, that Taylor could do really well with "Levon." I'm just a tad nervous cuz the song is one of Elton's John's most sweeping, emotional melodies. Also, AI is famous for hacking the amount of time people have to sing their songs. But if anyone can pull it off, it's Taylor.
On Elton's record, there is huge orchestration backing the song at points--I hope the AI band could fulfill its mission on this, too. Of course, Taylor could go the counter-intuitive route and do it as a quiet folk song.
