Best Elton John Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Greatest Discovery

This song is absolutely amazing. The "Live in Australia" version is especially brilliant. I listened attentively to this song several times after introducing our newborn son to his big brother 22 years ago. A true masterpiece!

Top 10 Elton song ever. Theme to Dog Day Afternoon.

63 Seasons

Also used in the pilot episode of "Wonder Years", in the scene where Kevin kisses Winnie for the very first time.

From the 1971 movie "Friends".
"Ain't it funny how young lovers start as friends".

64 Pinball Wizard

Definitely one of the best covers I have ever heard. I think Elton John fans will enjoy this, as most people who have heard it is the who fans

Elton created a version of the great Who song that is (too me) better then the original. I just love the "I Can't Explain" riff at the end of the song as a nod to the Who. EJ at his very best!

65 Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody is probably one of the hardest songs to cover, no matter how good you are. Elton's cover is easily the best. He just knew how the song was suppose to be performed. He knew how emotional the song actually is. A great tribute to a great friend of his.

66 I Want Love

How can this be not in the top ten... Amazing song... Powerful vocals

How is this so low? This song is... well, FANTASTIC! So much fun.

77 Are You Ready for Love

This is one of the greatest songs of all time, the fact that it's not even on the list is crazy!

78 Tower of Babel

Totally agree with that dude. One of my top 5 favourite songs, from any artist, of all time!

One of the Elton Jonh�'s BEST song, if not the BEST!

79 Home Again
