“Honky Cat” is a song from the 1972 Elton John album Honky Château, the album’s lead-off track.[1][2]

“Honky Cat” reached the Billboard top 10 when released as a single, but only reached #31 in Britain – and it is still a staple of “classic rock” radio. The song hit #8 on the U.S. charts, just as Elton John launched an American tour, in September 1972. The album title “Honky Chateau” is a reference to where it was recorded, the Château d’Hérouville, about 30 miles outside Paris.[3]

A live version was released on the Here side of the Here and There live set in 1976 (and its expanded CD version in 1995), and a solo piano version appeared on the “Live in Madison Square Garden” Vol. 1 limited edition CD, recorded in October 1999.[citation needed]
