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.
