    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    One of my favorite songwriters in fact and a fantastic lyricist (I guess Bernie Taupin should be given equal credit), I have a great deal of respect for this man. I'm particularly a fan of his older albums.

    Some of my favorite numbers:

    Your Song
    Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting
    Crocodile Rock
    This Train Don't Stop There Anymore
    Tiny Dancer
    Rocket Man (I Think It's Gonna Be A Long Long Time)

    Let me hear some of your favorites.

    well my favourite is
    blue eyes
    Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
    don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
  3. alpha1

    alpha1 I BLUES!

    Am his fan coz he is a queer.

    But among his songs I like the Lion King one the best.
    There is one Sacrifice too, which is one of my fav.

    I've only heard Tiny Dancer off that list...I'll have to check out the rest.

    As for my favourites, they're all pretty generic but here goes:

    a) Something about the way you look tonight
    b) Can you feel the love tonight
    c) Sacrifice
    d) Candle in the wind

    He's very unwatchable (with his wigs n toupees :phbbt: ), isn't he? Havent heard many of his songs.. but i actually love some of the stuff i've heard.. like

    real_illusions Clapton Is GOD

    I see none of the songs from the album "Songs From The West Coast" are mentoned in the list. Get it if you can. In my opinion it is Bernie's and Elton John's greatest work of art.

    No one can play blues on songs like his on the piano as well as him.

    3. Tiny Dancer
    4. Rocket Man
