​”SOMEONE SAVED MY LIFE TONIGHT”Elton John

​”SOMEONE SAVED MY LIFE TONIGHT”Elton John

Someone Saved My Life Tonight” is an Elton John song from his album Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. John originally wrote and recorded it in A-flat, though after vocal cord surgery in 1987 that resulted in him abstaining from using his falsetto range for a period, he more often performed the song in a lower key of F. It concludes side one in the album’s narrative, which chronicles the early history of John and lyricist Bernie Taupin and their struggles to find their place within the music industry. When released as the album’s only single in 1975, it was the first album to ever enter at #1 in the history of music on the Billboard Hot 100 and entered the top 25 on the UK Singles Chart. In the U.S., it was certified Gold on 10 September 1975 by the RIAA. In Canada, the single narrowly missed being his ninth number one there, hitting #2 on the RPM 100 national Top Singles chart on August 30.[1]

    I don’t know why I’d forgotten this song it’s one I always enjoyed. Reminds me now of another I heard years ago but never again called Skyline Pigeon.Everything about his songs was good from the writing onwards.

    We know a good song when it touches on our hearts and lives to listen and even reminisce.
