Another one of those #1 hits that had opposition from someone as far as having it released as a single. In this case it was the artist- Elton John felt that the track from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road- would fail as a single. Elton turned out to be wrong. It was the second of six #1’s Elton would have in the 70’s.
