My favourite songs by… Elton John


These are not really in order but do represent my long-term favourites by Elt, who despite being a tad uncool these days has undoubtedly turned in some very fine music in his time.  With a few exceptions, I’ve avoided the more obvious hits – evidence that the depth of Elt and Bernie’s catalogue goes well below the 3-minute hits:

  1. Boogie Pilgrim (Blue Moves)
  2. Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me (Caribou)
  3. Someone Saved My Life Tonight (Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy)
  4. Chameleon (Blue Moves)
  5. Have Mercy On The Criminal (Don’t Shoot Me…)
  6. Bad Side Of The Moon (17/11/70)
  7. Madman Across The Water (Madman Across The Water)
  8. Ticking (Caribou)
  9. Bennie And The Jets (Goodbye Yellow Brick Road)
  10. Tiny Dancer (Madman Across The Water)
  11. Philadelphia Freedom (Greatest Hits v2)
  12. Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding (Goodbye Yellow Brick Road)
