The Contenders: Page 2

21 Indian Sunset

The best song I've ever heard by Elton John. The lyrics are so powerful yet sad that it brings a tear to my eye

More of a story than a song, beautiful either way

22 The Bitch Is Back
23 Something About the Way You Look Tonight

It's elton john's all time best.. How couldn't it be in top 3. Very amazing song.

There is something about this song.

This should be the number 1 just listen to it its beautiful

I love this song...

Simply the best-in my mind.

24 Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word

The best song for making up with someone you love or care about. It really is the
Hardest word to say. I'm sorry. Thank you Elton John.

How could it be not #1?

Haunting melody, just his best effort ever...

25 Harmony

A true Elton fan favorite. Unfortunately, it's a not performing number, but it's lyrics tell a great story, and Elton shows off a sarcastic singing voice. I highly recommend listing to this RIGHT NOW

26 Sad Songs (Say So Much)
27 All That I'm Allowed (I'm Thankful)
28 Tonight

Even after many years, all my body is vibrating during listening to this song.

If you haven't heard this song, you need to. A masterclass in musicianship, lyrics and melody. You will be moved.

29 Chloe

Such a beautiful song, I dedicate this one to my best friend Chloe

His greatest song very underrated maybe because taupin isn't invovled

30 Blue Eyes

This song was dedicated to me way back on 9 October 2010 it was the first time I had ever heard the song and love it

31 We All Fall In Love Sometimes
32 Curtains
33 Circle of Life

Good to see both Lion King songs are in the top 10.

I love those songs. Makes me want to watch the movies again.

A meaning for song with timeless lyrics all relate to

This song is a life lesson in itself...

Powerful, solid, magnificent, amazing and most of all one of the most meanigful songs I've ever listened to. Its an anthem and it's the best song by Elton John.

34 Madman Across the Water

I agree, this song should be much higher in the poll. It's sad, haunting, and deep, and artfully arranged... All the reasons why it's so poorly understood and appreciated.

Powerful, haunting, and so tightly composed - this song is often overlooked, but remains as masterful as when it first premiered.

This guitar riff is almost unknown in Elton John songs. Amazing beautiful song. Aren't you a madman too?
This would have to be my favorite from Madman Across The Water album besides Tiny Dancer.

Polls can't be trusted. This song is 34th when it should be top 15. It's in my top 10 without a doubt.

35 Talking Old Soldiers

Beautiful, sad song dealing with old age and loneliness. How many pop tunes venture into that territory?

36 Skyline Pigeon

What! This song was 30's! Why this wonderful masterpiece in the LAST PLACE?! It should top 40 of ALL THE TIME! - gyungmin

Undoubtedly best Elton John song ever!

Only true Elton fans remember this. It is rarely heard on the radio and not often included in live shows(I've been to 57 since Baileys in Watford). This will always be my all time favourite piece of music. I'll have it at my funeral as a celebration of life listening to eltons music

The best lyrics by Bernie Taupin!

37 Razor Face
38 Nikita

Great song, Captures a great aspect of love during the cold war.

My dad loved this song and it will be played at the celebration of his life.

39 Border Song

Definitely should be in top 15. Border song has an indescribable feel to it

This song has a great gospel feel. Powerful lyrics and music.

40 Sad
