Elton Johns dead good isn't he?


#1

Loads of good songs


#2

My faves:

Sad songs,
Nikita,
rocket man,
song for guy
I guess that’s why they call it the blues

But there are a ridiculous amount. Big love Elt.


#3

Benny and the Jets is ridiculously good.


#4

It’s immense eh?

‘Total Entertainment Forever’ from the new Father John Misty album sounds very like the title song from Captain Fantastic to me. he’s way more influential than i think he’s given credit for.


#7

Madman Across the Water is genuinely one of the best albums ever.


#8

Saw him at caesars palace in vegas a couple of years back, great fun :grinning:


#9

People probs don’t want to be put in a bracket with him because he’ll outclass them every time. The number of hits is insane.


#10

Agreed. Sitting around in PJs and listening to Elton John on a Sunday morning is something I miss.


#11

Never bettered The Music For Princess Diana for me.


#12

Oh no no, wait, The Lion Cartoon.


#13

Yeah got a load of great songs


#14

Does anyone have any idea what ‘Passengers’ is all about?


#15

The first 6 tracks of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road are phenomenal.


#16

The title track’s his best.


#17

Yeah. Although I was listening to Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding the other day in awe of how great it is. This Song Has No Title is also hugely underrated.


#18

Love a bit of Elton. Crocodile Rock :heart_eyes:. Don’t ever want to hear Your Song or Don’t Go Breaking My Heart ever again tho.

I would also like to issue the daily reminder that Bernie Taupin also wrote We Built this City on Rock and Roll


#19

Crocodile Rock is unfairly maligned.


#20

He’s brilliant. ‘Daniel’ is a masterpiece.
