Bernie wrote most of the songs, the best one Elton wrote is probably The Man Who Never Died. laugh.gif

Bernie wrote most part of the lyrics, the songs were written by Elton and Bernie.

TMWND is an excellent song. It's an update from SFG, which is a great song, but I've always thought TMWND is better...

That fairly recent interesting article and link on this site featured "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" as a "perfect" song.

If you haven't read the article, check it out here:

I don't consider Someone Saved My Life Tonight as his best song. It's a good song, no doubt, but not his best.

Yeah well, I'd give the award for "The Bridge".

Best EJ song:

I would think that "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" should be in the running but this is a tough question. I've heard musicians comment about the beautiful complexity of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" which has a gorgeous and memorable melody.

How to rate "best?" A song like "Rocket Man" continues over time to invoke emotional responses across generations and continents. Its chorus is as recognizable as any Elton has ever written. There is a beautiful naïve simplicity and honesty that makes "Your Song" one of his best, as well. Both "Tonight" and "Carla/Etude" stand out from EJ's catalogue.

Any of these plus many others qualify, I would think - from a music fan's perspective.

Songs are lightning
When they strike you
You hang on every line
They’re bits of history
Don’t try to change ‘em
It’s how you’re feeling at the time

His name is Joonas. He will judge you whether you'll be saved or not. There's a court case coming...

I never heard of any Joonas, You need to read the 10 commandments.

The first one reads

“You shall have no other gods before Me."
Exodus 20:3

The second one is related to the first.

"You shall not make for yourself a carved image..."
-Exodus 20:4

I don't know anything about a court case. unsure.gif

Now lets get back to the original topic. biggrin.gif
