Quotes:

Anyone who pays $250 to see Madonna lip-synch (in concert) ought to be shot. Why is she (Madonna) such a nightmare? Her tour has been a disaster, and it couldn’t happen to a bigger c***. She looks like a fairground stripper. When you (Madonna) get up on stage tonight you make sure you do your lip-synching right!

Band Name Origins:

  • Reginald Dwight did indeed pick the names of two of his former bandmembers - singer Elton Dean and sax-player 'Long' John Baldrie.

It seems to me that you lived your life
With a load of taco wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the beans kicked in
And I would have liked to help you
But I couldn’t take the smell
I hope you go to Heaven
Cause you’ll sure blow up in Hell!
Original Lyrics:
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Your Song"
The Funny Lyrics:
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no...
Why They're Funny:
I love the song, Elton, but don't you think you could have written the lyrics before you got to the recording studio? (Perhaps he meant something like 'I'm not a sculptor, but I wish I was', but this is the best way he could arrange 'em to fit the structure of the song?)
Submitted by: Natalie D.
"Little Jeannie"
The Funny Lyrics:
And I want you to be my acrobat
Why They're Funny:
I have tried to picture Elton doing this in a circus, but I just can't. Perhaps it's metaphoric for something?? I probably don't wanna know

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"All the Nasties"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Oh my soul, oh my soul, oh my soul...
Why They're Repetitive:
This phrase is said approximately 30 times during the last half of the song.
Submitted by: David Jones
"Blessed"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
And you, you'll be blessed
You'll have the best I promise you that
I'll pick a star from the sky, pull your name from a hat
I promise you that
Promise you that
Promise you that
You'll be blessed
Why They're Repetitive:
I love this song but it gets repetitive, especially at the end where he keeps saying "Promise you that, promise you that, promise you that...." til the end. OK, OK. We get it! You made your point. Damn!
Submitted by: Annie
There are additional repetitive lyrics available.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Rocket Man"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It's just my job, five days a week.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I hardly think being an astronaut is a "five day a week" type of job. He sings the rest of the song as though he's far away from home and desperately lonely, then comes this line which implies he gets weekends off??
Submitted by: Michael S.
"Step Into Christmas"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Step into Christmas, let's join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is all just an oxymoron! First of all, how do you "step" into Christmas? Second of all, you can't watch the snow fall forever and ever because snow doesn't fall forever and ever. The snow HAS to stop falling at some point.
Submitted by: Plain Jane Pauley Perrette
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Philadelphia Freedom"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia Freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Why They're Insincere:
It's a well-known fact that Elton John was born in England. This song suggests that he was born in Philadelphia! Elton's such a liar!

[Ed's comment: I suggest Mr Dwight was talking about a subject other than his nationality...]
Submitted by: Aaerni
"This Song Has No Title"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Oh this song's got no title
Just words and a tune
Why They're Insincere:
Well duh its a song! Its supposed to have words and a tune. If it didn't have words and a tune it wouldn't be a song, Einstine.

Submitted by: Maggie
There are additional insincere lyrics available.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Your Song"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I don't have much money
But boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where
We both could live
Why They're Misrhymed:
Everyone knows that 'did' does not rhyme with 'live'. This is what makes this part of the song different from all the other parts. In all the other parts of the song, the words rhyme, as in 'inside, hide' 'no, show' 'do, you', 'moss, cross', 'do, blue', and 'mean, seen', if you know what I mean if you've heard this song.
Submitted by: Aaerni
"Can You Feel The Love Tonight? (lion King Version)"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
The sweet caress of twilight
There's magic in the air
And with all this romantic atmosphere
Disaster's in the air
Why They're Misrhymed:
One: No word (or phrase, for that matter) rhymes with itself. Two: Given that, how the heck do you rhyme 'magic' and 'disaster's'?
Submitted by: Jeffrey Hope
There are additional misrhymed lyrics available.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Island Girl"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Island girl, what you wanting with the white mans world
Island girl, black boy wants you in his island world
He wants to take you from this wretched spot
He wants to save you, but the cause is lost
Island girl(x3)
Tell me what you want with a white man's world
Why They're Insulting:
This song reeks of racism. Kinda makes you wonder if Elton's lyricist, Bernie Taupin, had any unresolved race issues when he wrote the words to this song.
Submitted by: Michael E. Cormier
"Dirty Little Girl"
The Insulting Lyrics:
I've seen a lot of women who haven't had much luck
I've seen you looking like you've been run down by a truck
That ain't nice to say sometimes I guess I'm really hard
But I'm gonna put buckshots in your pants if you step into my yard
Why They're Insulting:
Wow. It seems he's saying "yes, I know it's completely mean & unfair, but I have no compassion for you. You look like hell; get away from me!"
Submitted by: Blair

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Can You Feel The Love Tonight"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.
There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
when the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours.
Why They're Inappropriate:
One has to wonder if the author of these lyrics knows the meaning of the term "star-crossed". the way the term is invoked here makes the last two lines above go entirely contrary to the overall upbeat and optimistic tone of this song. for "star-crossed" means doomed or ill-fated, the term being rooted (at least symbolically) in a view that fates are determined in the stars. so a star-crossed voyager is not a voyager one would want one's heart beating in time with. that would be a major bad omen, to find one's heart beating in time with that of anyone who was star-crossed. that would turn that "rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors" into a dark and foreboding rhyme and reason in nature, suggesting a premonition that one is doomed to failure, a fate entirely contrary to the overall message of the song. in fact, the first two lines above clearly seem to imply that no one is really "star-crossed".
Submitted by: Karen Smith
"Honky Cat"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
They said get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
Why They're Inappropriate:
Does anyone else think it's funny that Elton John, a gay British singer known for his colorful outfits would have anything to do with 'redneck ways'?
Submitted by: Neil McRae
There are additional inappropriate lyrics available.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Philadelphia Freedom"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man
Why They're Dirty:
Elton probably meant this line to refer to growing up in a free society. But 'knee-high to a man' sounds like he's on his knees providing oral gratification to the man.
Submitted by: John
"I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Time on my hands, could be time spent with you...
Why They're Dirty:
The innocent figure-of-speech 'time on my hands' followed by 'could be time spent with you' first sounds like Elton is singing about how he's spending time away from the one he loves ... then on closer examination, it can also be heard as Elton hinting at exactly WHAT he's doing with his hands while he's thinking about the one he loves ...

"Levon"
The Lyrics:
Levon wears his war wound like a crown He calls his child Jesus `Cause he likes the name And he sends him to the finest school in town Levon, Levon likes his money He makes a lot they say Spends his days counting In a garage by the motorway He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day When the New York Times said God is dead And the war's begun Alvin Tostig has a son today And he shall be Levon
