Best Elton John Albums


The Top Ten

1 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

While I love all of Elton John's albums, this one really hit a chord with me. It was the first Elton John album I had ever heard, and I fell in love with his music after that. "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" is one of my all-time favorite Elton John songs. Plus, "I've Seen That Movie Too" is one of his most underrated ballads. Great place for anyone just starting with Elton John!

Elton's masterpiece. Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding is just epic, remembering Elton wrote the first part while thinking of the music to be played on his funeral, and Candle in the Wind is of course one of Elton's greatest creations... Jamaica Jerks Off is a funny song, not to mention Saturday Night's Alright and Bennie and the Jets. Well done, Elton and band and Bernie.

This has got to be his best 17 songs double album value for money. Funeral for a friend is immense, bennie and the jets is cool, candle in the wind is beautiful, grey seal catchy, saturday nights alright elton at his most rocking and the title track is so so good probably his best song with Rocket man! Captain Fantastic 2nd Honkey Chataeu 3rd

Totally! Bennie and the jets is my favorite song.Goodbye yellow brick road makes me sad that I shed a tear and yes candle in the wind is very good rip Marilyn Monroe and princess Diana.

4 Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player
5 Tumbleweed Connection

Brilliant combination of Country and Blues. Brilliant combination of John and Taupin. Brilliant paradox of no hit single but best song Elton John never wrote, Love Song. Probably greatest under the radar album of all time.
