48. Elton John - Your Song

Found on: Elton John (1970)

What's amazing is that Your Song represents only the beginning of the cavalcade of Elton John hits in the '70s, '80s and '90s. If I were in his sparkly platform shoes and had written a song this good, I would have never tried to write another.

Elton John didnt write his lyrics, he had the same guy do it for him his whole career though. He wrote his music that went with the lyrics.

Was going to say the same thing Bernie didn't write it for Elton it was recorded earlier by Rod Stewart and the bigger hit before Elton was Three Dog Night -- which I like better than this version.
