This is another one for my 1989-1995 thread. Yeah he put out some good stuff in those years.

I won't disagree that "The One" and "Believe" are great songs, but has anyone ever attempted to listen to the albums whence they came all the way through? They really do not hold up to Tumbleweed, Yellow Brick Road, or, for that matter, Songs from the West Coast.

All along I've only been talking about the singles. I haven't listened to any of the albums.

That is SUCH a great song. I also like Believe and Sacrifice. I have soft spots for a few of his cheesy 80s stuff too, especially I'm Still Standing.

This Train... definitely deserves to be ranked with his best.

Not all cheesy, though. Empty Garden is one of his best songs ever.

Sleeping With The Past is an excellent album.

There are some great songs from the 80s. Blue Eyes, Still Standing, I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues, I Don't Want to Go on with You Like That, and even little-known songs like Carla/Etude rank amongst his best work.

'Healing Hands' (was that '89 or '90?) and 'The Last Song' are two of my favourite Elton songs. Right up there with 'Philadelphia Freedom' and 'Bennie And The Jets' in my eyes! I saw him play in Hong Kong this May and even with pneumonia (or so he claimed) he was awesome!

Of Elton's 90's output, The One was my favorite song from him.


I liked The Lion King movie, but I wasn't a big fan of the soundtrack.
