Matthew Morrison unveils Elton John duet

You can’t hide from Matthew Morrison these days. He’s on Glee. He’s on talk shows. He’s live in concert. He’s on record. And now he’s in an Elton John song sandwich.

Morrison just dropped his duet with John, which mashes up “Rocket Man” and “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” into one blast of classic Elton; listen here. (The song will be available for download on Amazon tomorrow).

Morrison’s clean tenor pairs well with the Rocket Man’s, though his pipes lack the signature oomph of Elton’s elastic instrument.

Plus, “Rocket” has been covered to death, and Morrison’s version lacks the strangeness of William Shatner’s, the spookiness of Maynard James Keenan’s, or the meta-hilarity of Stewie Griffin’s.

    Why those two songs together? There’s no thematic similarity, no lyrical connection. He could have paired “Mona Lisas” with its sequel.

    • Willow

      Rocket Man was one of Morrison’s audition songs for Glee, so it’s kind of special for him. That’s probably why he chose to mash Mona Lisas with that song.

  • Trish

    Mona Lisa and Madhatters is one of my favorite songs by Elton John. That was a good choice. I like this mashup.
