"Elton John"

Elton John Has Had A Long And Storied Career Which Greatest Hits Collection ‘Diamond’ Luxuriously Captures

How many times have I heard the classic song “Tiny Dancer” or the epic glam rock ballad “Bennie & The Jets” over the airwaves? A bazillion times, that’s how many. Yet two truths must be told; one, that I have never been in love with these hits which have tickled folks for decades, and two, that I have never ever heard an Elton John album in its entirety. After listening to this album Diamond, I still can’t say that I am in love with Elton John’s music, nor could I say that I have finally listened to an album of his because I haven’t technically, as this is a greatest hits collection, though this is not explicitly stated on the album art. So here’s my thing – most of these songs are the big joints, and I am of course reminded of the ones I have heard but didn’t know the name of, etc, yet, I think I would have really loved to hear some songs that are both great and not overplayed on the radio. It makes me wonder – who is this album for, as super fans already own greatest hits collections, and novices like myself already have heard many of these tracks which are sort of ‘blah’ in my personal view. Great musicianship? No frickin’ doubt. Obviously good vocals and lyrics as well, but I suppose the only way to explain my lukewarm feelings in reference to the Sir Elton John Diamonds experiment is to take a stab at the pros and cons I detect within this greatest hits collection, and of course, celebrate my certain level of excitement over the few songs on Diamonds that I am hearing for the very first time. I’m sure some of you out there will scream ‘you’ve never heard “Mama Can’t Buy You Love”’, but it’s true, I’ve never heard this swanky disco rock track before in my life.
