Song 290 (Elton John--"Goodbye Yellow Brick Road")
I am having a busy and productive Saturday and I need to make a quick pick. I heard this song the other day on the radio and it was a potential pick in the back of my mind. Also, yesterday I saw a programme on the television about the making of this album which also cemented the pick, so I figured that now is a good time to choose this song from the excellent writing talents of John/Taupin.
Here is the studio version on YouTube.
Here is a Top of the Pops performance on YouTube.
Here is a live performance circa '76 on YouTube.
