With a career spanning nearly a half century, Elton John has cemented himself as one of the greatest musicians of all time. His songwriting, combined with catchy melodies and signature pop rock/R&B sound, made him the top selling artist of the 1970s and, for his career, one of the top selling musicians with well over 200 million albums sold. Elton’s discography is littered with Top 40 hits (more than 50), nine of which reached number one. On top of his six GRAMMYs, he’s also won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Tony Award.

With such a celebrated and decorated career, it would certainly be difficult to choose his greatest songs of all time. But over the last week, that has been your task. The voting was close, especially towards the bottom where two write-in selections tied for the #10 spot.
