Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is one of Elton John’s iconic songs.
Although he had songs rank higher on the charts (this one ‘only’ reached #2 on Billboard’s charts), it seems to have really struck a chord with the public, no pun intended.
It is not my personal favorite, that honor going to Bennie & the Jets, but it features a great melody and exceptional lyrics from Bernie Taupin.
Because of its range, it is a brutal song to sing. I just heard a wonderful, totally unique take on the song by singer Sara Bareilles. Watch the video above.
It is a treat.
