Elton John - "All the Girls Love Alice"

Recently discovering Elton John's brilliant double album "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," I knew I wanted to highlight one of the lesser known tunes from this great disc. Everybody knows "Candle in the Wind," "Bennie and the Jets" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," but this album is great top to bottom. I decided upon this gem because it shows the rocking, upbeat side of Elton so well. Blasting off with a badass guitar/piano riff, this song alternates between this upbeat section and a perfectly integrated slower section. It ends with a rousing finale featuring some cool guitar work with trippy effects added to the mix. Great song, great album. Can't wait to see what he does at Bonnaroo - he's a perfect fit for that festival. Unfortunately, I could only find this live version of the song, although it's pretty awesome.
