Philadelphia Freedom!

Philadelphia Freedom may not be my favorite Elton John song, but it holds a special place in my heart because it was released during the winter of My International Incident in Panama…

I didn’t actually hear the song until after I returned to the states in February of 1976, but it will always stand as a reminder of just how good it felt to be back home again, and, not to mention, free!

Philadelphia Freedom!

I want ice water.

  1. Somehow I had never read your Panama story. Wow. You were in deep kimshi there, my friend. The mistakes we make in our youth seen through the wisdom of our older eyes always seem so incredibly stupid, which is yet another reason why life should be lived in reverse.
