Iâm not a fan of his music, but Elton Johnâs âCandle In The Windâ has been embedded in my mind ever since Rocco Baldelli announced his retirement last week. The ballad has long been viewed as John articulating his feelings for the songâs subject, Marilyn Monroe, through the power of song. Still, thereâs one portion of the chorus that I feel best sums up Baldelliâs career â as well as other athletes who call it a career sooner than expected:
Your candle burned out long before â
Your legend ever did.
