I Love Elton John

    I'm 30 years old and didn't grow up on Elton

    John. One day I heard Bennie and the Jets. I was HOOKED. After listening to it for two months I explored more of his stuff. Let's just say now I'm something like an Elton John fanatic! Oh the raw talent and emotion is undeniable. His music always "takes me there". My favorite...

    So my teacher asked me what my favorite Elton

    John song was. I told him I couldn't decide. But if I had to it would be Tiny Dancer. His was Someone Saved My Life Tonight. It was a nice way to connect.

    Such a magical voice.

    Very few songs manage to hit the spot for me and so it is amazing that almost every Elton John song hits it! Goodbye Yellow Brick Road has to be my all time favourite, closely followed by Your Song and Rocket Man (of course). Musical genius.

    Great Performer.

    I love Elton John as a singer.  One of my favorite songs by him is "Little Jeannie."  But, when I see this group logo I think of "Blue eyes" which is a song that someone always sings to me, althought I am not too sure why, as I do...

    Amazing

    I love Elton!! I think he has an amazing voice and is an incredible song writer. He has had so many great songs (see video section of group) and his I love his outragous clothes and glasses. He seems to have got a little stroppy with age but he can be as stroppy as he likes with...

    So Many...

      I have so many favorites of Elton John!  And what makes him fun is that he does different styles of music, and different songs fit different moods.  It's like a song per every occasion!  Sir Elton is the only thing I listen to in my car.  I ...

    It isn't just his songs are great.

    I got sheet music for his album Songs from the West Coast. The chords and cadences are classical. And devilish to play. But it's going to be Bach, Schumann, Beethoven, John. Btw he has the same surname as me!

    Love His Music

    I grew up listening to this man.  He is such a great artist.  I get sick of people talking about his personal life.  I wish they would just stop and listen instead of judging him because of the way he is.  He seems to have a really big heart too.  I will...

    I have loved Elton John

    since I was a little girl. I remember sitting and watching him perform on some late night talk show when I was young and thinking how cool he was. When my daughter was born, I had a playlist of songs playing in the delivery room. When she was placed in my arms, Elton's "Your...

    Benny and the Jets

    I think Elton John has a unique way of presenting himself. He is very flamboyant but his songs are so sensual... Has anyone ever read his Bio? It is good?

    I love Elton John because I can identify with

    his music that he signs. I have seen him in concert three times and he is a class act. I saw him in concert in England and in the USA. Also, I saw Elton together with Billy Joel. This was another class act. These guys are wonderful piano players and singers.

    One of the best composers in the world.

    He has many famous songs, but it's an obscure song that's my favorite. It's called "The Greatest Discovery," and is about a little boy discovering that he just had a new brother and what his experience with it is like.
