Best Songs On Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road


The Top Ten

1 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Beautiful and so sad. It ties together the themes of loss of innocence and materialistic wealth perfectly. I love the music, the lyrics--everything.

2 Funeral for a Friend / Love Lies Bleeding

I like how this song slowly builds and then after 5 minutes or so, Elton is added to the mix. His excellent rock vocal stylings are present here as he sings anger well by shouting out the lyrics. "Love lies bleeding in my hands." What an expressive description.

This is an absolute EJ classic. So many great songs on this album, it was between Candle and this for me. Elton is the greatest artist ever as composer and performer as far as I'm concerned and this song is representative of such a great creative period which was music at its finest.

The epic beginning of the best Album of all times.

You'll never hear this song on the radio due to it's length, but this song is among the best of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin collaboration.
