Sir Elton John is a rock n' roll legend! He made his stateside debut in 1970 and has retained a lasting popularity for over four decades! He's an icon without peer and with good reason—he's written, sung, and played hit after hit and has become an iconic performer without peer. His music, flamboyant stage presence, and his support of charitable causes have made him a beloved household name.

John and lyricist Bernie Taupin blew up the charts with "Your Song," and had a mountain of his for years after including "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)," "Crocodile Rock," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me," "Philadelphia Freedom," "Tiny Dancer," "Levon," "Honky Cat," "Sad Songs Say So Much," "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word," "Bennie and the Jets," and so many more. He released classic albums one right after the next in the early '70s and went on to even greater success in the '80s and '90s with his soundtrack work for The Lion King and many others. John is about to retire, but not before doing a year's worth of already sold out shows around the world to commemorate his long and stellar career.

If you're a die-hard Elton John fanatic and you've followed him from the flamboyant early 70s until today you'll be able to identify his best and most popular songs from just one lyric! Do you think you have what it takes? Turn up the music and let's find out!
