Elton John Songs
There are so many great Elton John songs that it's nearly impossible to narrow down the best ones. However, there are still a few songs that easily stand out from the man that once dressed like a sparkled duck while performing, but is now a much more respected singer/songwriter.
- "Your Song" The great thing about this Elton John son is that anyone can sing it to anyone, and make that song their's. In other words, it doesnt have any particular name in it that limits it to any one particular person. If someone sings this Elton John song to you, baby, it's your song.
- "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" This song is all about dating services before online dating became all the rage. It's a sad, but hopeful song about a guy that realizes the promises made by such services are not all they're cracked up to be. And no, the lyric has nothing to do with Dorothy, a Wizard or a land of Oz.
- "Candle In The Wind" The best songs are like cats: they have many lives. The Elton John song, "Candle In The Wind," is just such a song. It was written about the short, sometimes tragic life of Marilyn Monroe. However, this song took on a whole new life when Elton John sang it at Princess Diana's funeral.
- "Tiny Dancer" How can anyone forget the singing of this Elton John song in the film "Almost Famous"? It's a love song, but it's more than that. It's the character study of a dancer, too.
- "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" This Elton John was inspired by The Bible, of all things. In Ephesians 4:26 it reads: "In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are anger." This Elton John's song is a plea for reconciliation -- before the sun goes down. It's always cool whe a pop song can teach Biblical truth. Outside of that, this is just a wonderful ballad, which Elton John sings with a whole lot of emotion.
