Last call for Elton lists

Postby Positive Passion » 02 May 2021, 20:55

I was inspired by listening to Candle in the Wind to have another round of BCB's faves. You probably know the drill, but anyway:

Send me a pm with your favourite 20 Elton John songs in order. If you can't manage 20 songs,send a shorter list.
I will then allocate points to each track - 24 for your number one song down to 5 for your number twenty, add them all up and we will find a winner.
It is more fun if you do not post your list on this thread, as then there is more of a surprise at the results, but I don't really care if you want to.

We have done a few of the before - fange did the first one about the stones - but none of the previous ones have had such a wide range of tracks picked people's top fives. We are destined for a classic!

Sent.
It was hard.
I realise that my favourites are all singles and I filled the list out with album tracks I've only heard a few time but quite like.
Bugger off.
