Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
I guess that's why they call it the blues
Don't let the sun go down on me
All brilliant, what are you on about?
not so much 'I guess that's why they call it the blues', as it gives me the shits somehow.
there's plenty of great stuff by ej.
This one still blows me away;
My Father's Gun
Excellent stuff - I can't say I have the emotional space for it now, but in the 70s his music was often a relief if you found yourself having to listen to daytime Radio 1.
I liked quite a bit of his early 70s stuff. Favourite is probably Crocodile Rock.
I think there's only one duff track on that album
I am going to do what I loathe in others and say....nah, I never really dug an Elton John song like.
I was at the time obsessed by passengers.
I think he actually looks cool in this video. I just watched it now for the first time
The song has merit.....
Rocket Man with the cartoon was great a couple of years ago
I’m not particularly a fan and have never bought or listened regularly to any of his music. He’s a bit like Rod Stewart in that respect: he’s part of the U.K. fabric of music that would create a gaping hole if they weren’t there, regardless of being a fan.
I've been a fan since 1969, between then and now, he has produced some absolute gems, and some utter dross, in common with most musicians with a career of this length.
Individual tracks are almost too numerous to name. but:
60 Years on
Where to now St. Peter
Burn down the mission
Funeral for a friend/love lies bleeding (I used to play that whilst blazing along single track roads at insane speeds )
etc etc etc...
I am surprised no one has suggested this as his all time best.
