Weekend Rock Question: What Is Elton John’s Best Song?

Cast your vote in our weekly poll

Elton John hasn’t released a solo album in six years. That streak is going to break next year with the release of The Diving Board, a T-Bone Burnett-produced LP that was recorded with bassist Raphael Saadiq and drummer Jay Bellerose. It’s his first time working in a trio format since the early 1970s, and fan expectations are very high.

Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite Elton John song? He has a huge catalog, so please feel free to go beyond the obvious hits. We all love “Tiny Dancer” and “Your Song,” but “Indian Sunset” and “My Father’s Gun” are equally brilliant. His work in the 2000s is also underappreciated. Check out “Blues Never Fade Away” and “This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore” if you don’t believe us. Vote for whatever song you want, but please only vote once and only for a single song.
