Elton John Improvs an Oven Manual Song

This hidden gem showcases the legend's talent, and convinces you to read your oven manual

This is what happens when you give Elton John an oven manual: He looks at it for 10 seconds, sits down at a piano, and pounds out some melodies advising you to really read the manual to a "conventional oven thermostat" cover-to-cover. "It may seem like a chore/ but it will pay off in the long run," he sings.

Music starts 55 seconds in. It starts out rather solemn, wandering into minor-key territory, until Elton John surprises everyone with a happier direction around 1:50. So do you have a new toaster? A new fridge? Make it into a song, and you'll find the manual much easier to get through.
