For over 30 years, the lyrics of Bernie Taupin and the music of Elton John have been a mainstay of rock. An example of Berne Taupin's lyrics (from Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player):
You wore a little cross of gold around your neck, I saw it as you flew between my reason, Like a raven in the night time when you left. I wear a chain upon my wrist that bears no name, You touched it and you wore it, And you kept it in your pillow, all the same, My high-flying bird has flown from out my arms, I thought myself her keeper, She thought I meant her harm, She thought I was the the archer, A weather man of words, But I could never shoot down. My high-flying bird
Elton John has had so many hits (and songs that should have been hits but weren't) over the years, it is hard to pick out a list of favorites, but here are a few from the 70's and early 80's:
