21 Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters

The mandolin in this song is beautiful. The line " I thank The Lord there are people out there like you" makes me think of the good friends I have.

Most underrated Elton John song. Fantastic lyrics, great piano, what more could you ask for?

He sings a heart-felt/soulful story.

This is a really beautiful song. Thanks to whoever posted it.

22 The Bitch Is Back
23 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

24 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

Simply the best-in my mind.

I love this song...

25 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.

26 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

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 Sad Songs (Say So Much)
30 Blue Eyes

32 We All Fall In Love Sometimes
33 Curtains
34 Talking Old Soldiers

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

35 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.

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.
