The song that seems to sum up the rescue

We listened to some ELTON JOHN this morning while reading about the rescue of the CHILEAN MINERS.
"DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON ME," with it's lyrical references to light and darkness, and theme of threatened lost love, seemed appropriate.

The 1974 single peaked at No. 16 in John's native U.K., and stalled at No. 2 in America -- kept off the top spot by John Denver's "Annie's Song," Roberta Flack's "Feel Like Makin' Love" and Paper Lace's "The Night Chicago Died."

The miners' rescue is such a remarkable story.

The 33 men have spent 69 days trapped underground -- longer than anyone on record.
Thus far, 10 of the men have been retrieved from their underground home for the past two month.
The last miner is slated to be shift foreman Luis Urzua, credited for helping the men endure 17 days with no outside contact after the collapse.
I guess that's why "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" seems like the most appropriate tune.
