THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
481-Elton John and Kiki Dee-Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.
1976-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 2.55.The probable explanation why Elton John performs live sat at a piano.
Elton John(see also best songs 946) and Bernie Taupin had originally intended to record the song with Dusty Springfield,but she had to withdraw because she was too ill at the time.
The song came about because Elton John had always been a fan of Tamla Motown duets by the likes of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.The idea was to record a cover version of The Four Tops song ‘Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever,’until they came up with this gem.
In 1994 a re-recorded version of the song this time with RuPaul reached Number seven in the UK.
‘Honey when you knock on my door I gave you my key.’
