There just is not any music with such depth, originality and emotion like songs from this time period. This particular cut always reminded me of my disabled brother John for some reason. Thanks Elton for sharing the music of our own lives....A. Street/Austi n Texas

I can never find this album for a good price on vinyl!

Yes the song title was inspired from Levon Helm. Apparently Elton and Bernie were big fans.

This is an amazing song.

I love Elton John and can never get enough of his music. He was ahead of his time, and did it his own way !

My favorite from this great artist.. All his tracks on madman across the water were gems including this beauty..

don't know about any connection with Levon Helm, but I think it is sweet that Elton made this one of his first son's names. He too was born on Christmas day :)

Classic indeed :-)

Does this song have anything to do with Levon Helm from The Band? He is an awesome musician and songwriter as well
Report as inappropriate
I think this song has very little meaning. I think it just rhymes well and has a great melody. Elton and Bernie have done much better on other collaboratio n s , like Mona Lisas and Madhatters and Candle in the Wind. I actually think Elton is overated a bit.

totally agree - Bernie Taupin does not get the credit he deserves and the two together wrote some amazing songs

Elton should have stuck with Bernie Taupin for his whole career. That man wrote some fantastic songs and doesn't get much credit for it.

Great song!

love the fact that he gave his son the middle name of Levon - born on Christmas day 2010

You really think Elton John reads these comments on Pandora???

congratulati o n s , Elton, on your new son...

Elton John, with Bernie Taupin, is a force to be reckoned with! Together, they wrote some unbelievable music. Elton is not the same witout Bernie...... . a n d I guess Bernie is not the same without Elton.

An amazing Artist !! I really never new all the words to the song until I did the full Lyrics in Pandora, now I understand what the song is al about.

Dale..agree 100%. Hard to stop after Levon when it went to Tiny Dancer.

The music, the arrangements and the lyrics all put together so perfectly. So many have said Goodbye was his best but Madman was perfect. Every song stayed with you. I couldn't pick up the needle and replay a song because the next one was just as good. Elton n Bernie rocked.
