Elton John's Best Songs Poll

20 songs is too little for  Elton John, who happens to be one of my Top 10 artists of all time.  This list has nothing beyond 1983.  Had I been able to list 30, it would have.  Elton's classic period of 1970-76 is heavily represented.  He was just on a roll in those years.  There's good stuff from 1984 and beyond, but the classics are just too good to ignore.  Below the songs are my Top 5 Elton albums.  

1.  Bennie and the Jets
2.  Philadelphia Freedom
3.  Your Song
4.  Tiny Dancer
5.  Don't Go Breaking My Heart
6.  Rocket Man
7.  Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting
8.  Bitch Is Back
9.  Honky Cat
10. Someone Saved My Life Tonight
11. Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
12. Levon
13. I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues
14. Daniel
15. Funeral for A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
16. Crocodile Rock
17. Mama Can't Buy You Love
18. Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
19. Island Girl
20. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

1.  Honky Chateau
