Elton John Quiz -2 (About The Daniel)
At what time of the day does Daniel travel?
Question 1 Explanation:
"Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane" On a "Big old jet airliner" perhaps?
What can the singer see Daniel doing?
Arguing with an Air Marshall
Taking out extra insurance
Talking on a phone
Question 2 Explanation:
"Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye" I wish I knew how many times "Leaving On A Jet Plane" went through Bernie Taupin's head when he come up with this line!
At the end of the first verse, the singer says that "it looks like Daniel". What reason does he give for his uncertainty?
Must be the clouds in my eyes
Forgot my glasses, didn't I?
Because he's left me high and dry
Cause he's so far off in the sky
Question 3 Explanation:
"God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes" As discussed in the answer to question 10, this line causes some confusion. Does the singer know it is Daniel? Does Daniel exist any longer? So many questions
What mode of transport is Daniel taking?
Question 4 Explanation:
"Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane". This is probably a good thing. Depending on where the point of departure was, a car could take forever!
Has the singer ever been to the place that Daniel is travelling to?
It is not stated
He thought he might have been there when he was young
Question 5 Explanation:
"They say Spain is pretty though I've never been Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen" Let's hope the Spanish Tourist Bureau appreciated the free plug!
Is Daniel older or younger than the singer?
They are the same age
It is not stated
Question 6 Explanation:
"Daniel my brother, you are older than me"
What relationship to the singer is Daniel?
Question 7 Explanation:
"Daniel my brother, you are older than me" This is assuming we can take the use of the word "brother" in its usual literal sense.
Where is Daniel travelling to?
Question 8 Explanation:
"Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain" I guess I can't let this go by without theorising that in the main, rain fell on the plane when it got to Spain?
Why is Daniel leaving?
To get away from the Tax Department
It is not stated
To get away from the mafia
Daniel and the singer had a fight
Question 9 Explanation:
It is not discussed in the song why Daniel is leaving, though there is a vague reference in these lines: "Daniel my brother, you are older than me Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal Your eyes have died but you see more than I" Although it remains unclear whether this is anything to do with his departure. Of course, the above lyrics, coupled with: "Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes" and "Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much" Could they infer that Daniel is deceased? It is all too deep for me to interpret!
Which of the following body features is not mentioned in the song?
Question 10 Explanation:
All of the alternate choices are mentioned is successive lines: "Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal Your eyes have died but you see more than I Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky"
