Product Description

Whether he's collaborating with longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin or other songwriters (such as his Lion King partner, Tim Rice) Elton John has written and performed some of the most cherished love songs in the pop-music canon. This career-spanning retrospective spotlights that particular aspect of his artistry, focusing on classics such as "Your Song," "Believe," "The One," "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word," and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me." The album takes a rather expansive view of the concept--there are also tracks here such as "Daniel," which is less a love song than a tribute to a wounded war veteran, and a live take of "Candle in the Wind," which, kiddies, was once a song about Marilyn Monroe, not Princess Diana. John's Lion King triumphs--"Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and "Circle of Life"--are included, as are a pair of new tracks, "You Can Make History (Young Again") and "No Valentines." The album may stray from the topic a bit, but there's little doubt that these songs are among his most essential. --Daniel Durchholz

This was my first and still is my favorite Elton John album - it is practically like a greatest hits collection. The songs are extremely relaxing and romantic. If I were to suggest one album to someone who was interested in owning an Elton John CD, this would be the one I recommend.

This album is great. I think the choice of songs for an album titled "Love Songs" is perfect, because everyone knows that not all love is romantic love. There's brotherly love, which is reflected in the song "Daniel". Fatherly love for his unborn child, as expressed in "Blessed", and the love or infatuation that someone can feel for a movie star, like Marilyn in "Candle in the Wind", and also love for the Earth and mankind as shown in "Circle of Life". And no one is better at singing such songs, as Elton, or at writing such lyrics as Bernie. And to top it all off, this album includes two new songs, "You can make history (young again)", and "No Valentines". A must for all true EJ fans.

If you enjoy Elton John and like his mellow music best, you've found your CD. Most of the hits on this solidly pop CD were top 40 hits, many of them top 10 and a few were #1's. Because Elton John has had mellow songs from the beginning of his career, this music covers the time frame from the beginning of his popularity in the US (1969) to 1996. The music is all excellent, even the two sometimes-reviled hits from "The Lion King".

Two of the songs on this CD are new, "You Can Make History (Young Again)" and "No Valentines". Both are good songs that show how easily Elton John can churn out listenable music.

I strongly believe that Elton John has the ability to write elevator music for hours a day if that was his interest. Fortunately the orchestration and skill that he puts into his mellow music frequently elevates it to the level of excellent, and thus suitable to be top 40 music. Elton has more talent on his off days than most current musicians on their best days, and this CD shows much of that talent.

Five of the 15 songs are from the "classic years": "Daniel", "Someone Saved My Life Tonight", "Your Song", "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me", and "Candle in the Wind". Of these, two are remakes: "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" is a live duet with George Michael that was a hit for both in the early 90s, and a live version of "Candle in the Wind" recorded at a concert in Australia in the late 80s. Both are very good versions of the originals, which says a lot because I normally am not a fan of live music recorded for CD.

The eight songs remaining after the two new songs cover the period from 1976 to 1995. Of these, five ("The One", "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", "Believe", "Blessed", and "Circle of Life") were released from 1992 to 1995.

Great selection of songs on this CD, including the famed "Candle in the Wind," the original tribute to Marilyn Monroe. A few of these songs were new to me, but the classics, like "Daniel," still sound as great as when John released them. A must have for any Elton John fan and great mood music when you are with that special someone.

This is a great compilation of Elton John essential love songs, but it is missing a few of the good ones from the 80s. I had the fortune of listening to the European import version before I heard this one. The US release is missing "Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues," and this is regretful. This CD is also missing "Nikita."
I love this CD, but it could have been perfect with the inclusion of those two. However, I'm glad I have it, and I love to listen to it! If you like Elton, you're not going to be disappointed!

Beautiful! Great moodstabilizer for people who suffer from bipolar disorder. Can You Feel The Love Tonight does wonders because bipolar people are restless warriors, wide-eyed wanderers, and star-crossed voyagers. There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors. Just believe the words in the song and your feelings improve.

But all the pieces on this album are wonderful. im very sad though that two of my favorites arent on here(tiny dancer and something about the way you look tonight), but even minus those two this album is fabulous.Read more ›
