THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
237-Elton John-Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
1973-Number 6 single.
Best Bit-At 0.40.’I shall take the heart,for brains do not make one happy and happiness is the best thing in the world.’
According to ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ the Yellow Brick Road is the road that is supposed to lead to life’s fantasies and life’s answers,it is only when you have walked it you realise that what you had was what you were looking for all along.
As with the majority of Elton John songs(see also best songs 946 and 481) the lyrics were written by Bernie Taupin,who first met Elton John after both had answered an advertisement in the UK music paper ‘New Musical Express’ in 1967.
Away from providing the lyrics to dozens of Elton John songs Taupin is also the co-writer of ‘We Built This City,’the 1985 song from Starship,later covered by LadBaby and becoming the Xmas Number 1 of 2018.’
‘Oh,I’ve finally decided my future lies beyond the yellow brick road.’
