Best Elton John Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Where to Now St. Peter?

Best Elton John / Bernie Taupin collaboration hands down. Soaring and poetic, one of the few pop songs to ever deal meaningfully with the topic of death.

The old stuff with taupin on the typewriter n elton on the piano its all sooo good! Razor face elderberry wine writing. N on n on

62 Oceans Away
63 Club at the End of the Street
64 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.

66 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!

67 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.

68 I Want Love

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

71 Song for Guy
72 Honky Cat

WHAT?! Should be top 20! Amazing piano!

73 Stan

Great song him and Eminem did together. I honestly think he sang better than Dido. But that's just my opinion.

74 Electricity
75 A Word In Spanish
76 Blessed
77 Burn Down the Mission

Great everyhting

78 My Father's Gun
79 Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy

Such an underrated song, great writing, great beat, so good!

Underrated song from an underrated album. So good.

And what a story. Elton and Bernie - Billyv

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

80 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!
