You should listen to Madman Across the Water

Re: Artist of the Week: Week 1

Madman Across the Water and Honky Chateau are Elton's best two albums in my opinion.

I started buying all of Elton's CDs.


Do you even have his slammed 'Leather Jackets' album? Or that album with the disastrous version of Johnny B Goode?


I have both. "Leather Jackets" is pretty much worthless and only of interest to completists like me. The other album is called "Victim of Love" and even Elton has disowned that album. Rightfully so, it's easily his worst album.

I second that. Madman Across the Water and Honky Chateau are two of his best, but I'd probably take Tumbleweed Connection over either of them (and even GYBR). There are no big hits on it, but there are some wonderful songs on there (I think I listed at least three on my Top 25), and the whole thing just works really well as a whole.

Sorry about the delay, here are the results:
1- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (241 points)
2- Tiny Dancer (236)
Tie 3- Rocket Man (191)
Tie 3- Your Song (191)
5- Bennie and the Jets (147)
Tie 6- Crocodile Rock (117)
Tie 6- Candle in the Wind (117)
Tie 6- Daniel
9- Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting (116)
10- Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding (88)

After that, the list is all over the place. two other songs (Don't Let the Sun go Down On Me & I Guess That's Why they Call it the Blues) Scored more than 80 points. I must admit at first glance I thought Tiny Dancer had an easy victory with Your Song as a close second. So, in two weeks of Artist of the week, the heavy favorite has lost. I wonder if this patern will continue.
