FAB MUSIC PORTION

here we are guys with our Fab Music Portion
with our future hit maker
Elton John
Elton John has been one of the most successful recording artists to ever come out of the U.K. He is known for his flamboyant costumes and outrageously big sunglasses, but nothing he wears can outshine his terrific voice and his ability to compose great music. While Elton has numerous successes on the U.S. charts, there are ten of his songs that really stick out for their significance to his career
lets begin listing his top five greatest hits
TOP 5 GREATEST HIT FROM ELTON JOHN
"YOUR SONG"

"Your Song" was released in 1970 on John's self-titled album. This was one of the first songs John co-wrote with Bernie Taupin, his writing partner, when Taupin was only 17. It reached number 8 on the U.S. charts.

TOP 4 GREATEST HIT FROM ELTON JOHN

"GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD"


The 1973 "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" album brought Elton multiple hits. The first was "Bennie and the Jets" which rose to number one on the U.S. charts. Elton actually performed this song on "Soul Train" and became one of the few white performers to play on the show at that time.

TOP 3 GREATEST HIT FROM ELTON JOHN

"CANDLE IN THE WIND"


The "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" album also contained the hit "Candle in the Wind" which climbed the charts to number 6. Originally, this song was written as a tribute to Marilyn Monroe and it's about a great person whose life ends prematurely. Later in his career, John would perform and dedicate this song to Princess Diana and also Ryan White, a young AIDS patient.

" DONT LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON ME"



"Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" was another product of the "Caribou" album. Most people don't know that the original version features Carl Wilson and Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys as well as Toni Tennille of The Captain and Tennille on back up vocals. While the 70's version reached number 2 on the U.S. charts, this song was later redone by John with fellow Brit George Michael in 1991.

THE GREATEST HIT OF ELTON JOHN

"CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT"


Elton's most recent super-success was "Can You Feel the Love Tonight". The song was featured in the Disney movie "The Lion King" and released on the soundtrack of the same name. Elton composed the music for this hit, Tim Rice wrote the lyrics. Coincidentally, both writers have been knighted by British royalty. The soundtrack went on to sell over 10 million copies while the song won the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal and the Oscar for best Original Song.Amazingly enough, Elton John is still writing and singing great tunes to this day, making his career span over an astonishing four decades. I am sure there are many more hits to come from this great rock legend.
