All of the songs listed so far are great. My favorite EJ song is...

When I was a kid I bought Elton John's single Philadelphia Freedom. It had a live performance of I Saw Her Standing There as the B-side featuring John as a guest artist.

I remember liking Elton John a lot more after that!

AFAIK the only Elton John record I've ever bought is this:

It was released on DJM, which was Dick James' label (he was The Beatles' publisher). I think it was released in 1981 in the UK, but I bought it some years later at a record fair.

This whole post has made me feel very old - I can't remember the last time I bought a 7" single.

Yes, great track! Really shows Sir Elton's versatility.

Wow, not even John Lennon can stand out when Elton's wearing that outfit!

Elton's done some great Lennon covers to also include Come Together and One Day At A Time. He's also got a version of Get Back out there.

If one man ever matched the White Album, it's this man. This man was, potentially, the best 70's artist. My favourite song would have to be Rocket Man.
Any other fans of EJ?

Amateur footage of some of John's appearance with Elton appeared last year and you can see it below, just skip to around 3:45 minutes. There is also a video with the sound synced properly with additional related footage used when required but thats been removed by EMI.blue-meanie

(If someone can tell me why its not embedding itself and is a link i'd like to know – you'll have to click and go to the youtube page itself – sorry.)

In 1997, following the hurricane in Montserrat, George Martin organised a concert at the Royal Albert Hall to raise money (one of his AIR studios being based there at the time). Paul, Elton and Sting (taking a verse each) with Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler performed a version of Hey Jude, which was included on the highlights album, Music for Montserrat.

There are other instances of them performing together at charity/special events.
