Best or favourite? I voted for favourite.

Favourite I meant. I’ve amended the thread title. Sorry, I’ve been at the fancy rum.

Some people might argue it’s the same thing but I’m not sure :woman_shrugging:

I’ve changed my vote three times. This is impossible, sorry everyone.

It’s absolutely not.

Shiiiiiiit. So many good songs.


I know but I’ve changed my mind. I had a very boring day at work then came home and drank some rum and listened to more Elton and I think Rocket Man is better now. I’m sorry I’m not sorry.

Ignore my last post then. Nothing to see here.

It’s rocket man or tiny dancer but it’s impossible to say which


I feel given your indecision this should’ve been a pick 3 kinda poll…


My flip-flopping over this important decision shouldn’t impact on other people’s faith in their opinion. I’m now happy with my choice.

Rolling like thunder under the covers”


I know! One of those artists I always forget about being really fucking great until I hear something on the radio etc and go through all the absolute tunes.

Where the dogs of society howl
You can’t plant me in your penthouse
I’m going back to my plough”

Impossible job to pick one.

Seems like as good an excuse as any to post one of the best music photographs of all time… image

In the absence of Ghetto Gospel, voted for Crocodile Rock. Always loved that weird MWWWAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH, MWAH MWAH MWAH MWAH MWWWAAAAAAAAAHHHH noise, still have no idea if it’s his voice or a weird organ or something, it’s great
