I like Elton in his early career, but can't stand his later songs.

No doubt his 'golden era' ended in '78 (some would argue '75 or '76). His work after that up to the end of the '80s is pleasant enough, but he got too 'adult contemporary' in the '90s before making somewhat of a rebound after the turn of the century.


As for this song, I have to admit I've never been a fan of its sax playing. It's got a kind of cheesy sound to it. Ditto "Power To The People " and "Woman Is the N—r of the World." I generally don't like the way he, George, and Ringo often (over)used horns in their songs. I much preferred Paul's more sparing use of them.
