3402. Elton John - Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
From: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road; Year: 1973; Genre: Progressive Rock
Still have this great album on my mind today, so I'm picking another from of it. This medley is probably my favourite of all of Elton John's work. It wisely/skillfully fuses one of his most progressive and symphonic pieces with a straight-ahead rocker, which made it not only have a wide appeal, but got it played on the radio to boot.
