Well, they're packed pretty tight in here tonight....
Elton John's most rocking hit "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting" made it's chart debut today (8/11) back in 1973. A bit of a dud for EJ, this one only made it to #12, in the middle of a dozen Top 10's (including ten top 5's and five #1's!). From the classic "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" album, which (IMHO) was crative Elton's peak, if not his commercial peak. Elton had a whopping 24 top 40 hits in the 70's, but most of what came after 1974 doesn't thrill me.
