Peter Hamilton Fake news John Dury was born at his parents' home at 43 Weald Rise, Harrow Weald, Middlesex (though he often pretended that he had been born in Upminster, Essex, which all but one of his obituaries in the UK national press stated as fact).[1

Peter Black They had a unique sound nobody could touch. Floundering to start with they got the ball rolling over at Motown and never looked back......
Brian Terrell As great as they and their records were they still didn't make me appreciate r&b/soul like I should have at the time. I was too dependent on the brits to filter it all down to me...

Happy birthday to Elton John, Born on this day 25th March 1947. 1971 UK No.7 single 'Your Song', 1973 US No.1 single 'Crocodile Rock' seven other US No.1's. Biggest selling single of all time with 1997 'Candle In The Wind 97', plus over 50 UK...

Dave Marley Just put it on and let it all play through. If possible, cut number 1, 'Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding' should be played at a level to rattle the windows as it builds to a crescendo. Heard it live a few years ago and it was awesome.
Paul F Cole I remember when I was 13 or 14 (1974/75) the only albums I would bring to a party were The Blue Album 67-70 by the Beatles and Goodbye Yellowbrick Road by Elton lol
Paul Gillie my one wish is to get the chance to meet both Elton and Bernie, just to shake their hand and say thank you for the music and memories. there are so many songs that I could listen to over and over but I always go back to Madman Across the Water and listen to Indian Sunset. this song paints such a vivid picture and there is such intense emotion in Elton's voice, it is such an underrated album that if it was released today, it would give Mr Shearan a run for his money. Happy birthday Sir.
Melonie Hurst On the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album: Your Sister Can't Twist (But she can rock-n-roll)! On Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, (I love all of them) I guess I would choose: Bitter Fingers
James Tuchscherer I have a few: I guess that's why they call it the blues, sad songs (say so much), nikita, this train don't stop there anymore just to name a few
Helen Kratsas Savage Loved this album. Joe Vergopia brought it into school in 8th grade and we were all looking at it. First time I saw a double album
James Little Happy Birthday Sir Elton John. I have been a fan since I can remember. I was a little kid when Crocodile Rock came out and I can remember singing along to it and dancing around the house with my older sisters. My favorite two songs are Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding and Levon. My birthday wish for you is: I wish you good health, happiness, and the continued ability to keep writing songs about life for another 70 years.
Brianna Hojnacki Another name Elton used for hotels was Sir Horace Pussy. 😂 My favorite song by Elton John is "Sleeping With The Past". I'm also 17 and he's my biggest hero and celebrity crush. 😍 Love you, Elton... have a happy 70th 😘💖 #HappyBirthdayElton
Michael Fisk Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding. I picked that track because then I get 2 instead of 1.
Peter Black This album is his crown jewel does not get any better for Sir Elton than this double album....
Jim Rogers I did not like when he plagiarized his own song, "Candle in the Wind" for Diana. That was Norma Jean's song.
Zoraida Ferrell Norton wow...been listening to Elton since the beginning....happy day to you dude!!
David Jacobson Happy birthday to the best nothing like an Elton John concert Goodbye Yellow brick Road the best
Oscar Tovar Funeral for a friend,Goodbye yellow brick road,Rocket man,Empty garden........
