This single was the first entry for Elton John into the Billboard Hot 100- it was the final debuting single of the week and while it spent 5 weeks in the Hot 100 it only rose to #92. Things would soon change- Elton around this time would begin his first touring of the U.S. His debut show in LA got rave reviews and the rest as they say is history. He would have 68 Hot 100 singles with 56 making the Top 40-with 8 #1’s from 1970-2000. An impressive and consistent singles artist over the years.
