I like both their music but Elton wins it for me because of the two amazing albums

GYBR and Caribou.

Even though the lyircs got a bit silly on the latter I adore songs like

I've Seen The Saucers
Ticking (which is my all time fav song by EJ by the way)
Bitch Is Back

GYBR has the amazing Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding (VERY Proggy in my opinion) and Harmony along with All The Young Girls Love Alice and the aforementioned Grey Seal.

Billy is a great singer songwriter also and I have his Stormfront and Greatest hits albums which I both love.

Best wishes

John

Not going to vote, as I love them both, but for different reasons.

I think Goodbye Yellow Brick Road truly deserves classic album status; it has some wonderful songs on it (and not just the arguably better know GYBR and Candle in the Wind).

My favorute BJ album is probably The Stranger but I wouldn't put it quite in the same league as GYBR.

However, what I've always loved about BJ's songs is that the lyrics of some of them resonate personally with me in a way that EJ (or rather Bernie Taupin's) lyrics don't. Don't get me wrong, I think Bernie is a wonderful lyricist; just that at certain times in my life I've listened to BJ's output and the song seems to have a certain relevance to me at that time. I've not really felt the same way about EJ's songs, although I love Rocket Man, GYBR, This Song Has No Title, Sweet Painted lady etc.

Thinknig on it, I have far more of BJ's albums than EJs. Still, I'm undecided about to who vote for!

I was reading on the web the other day that Elton and Billy have fallen out after Elton suggested Billy go into rehab for his drinking. undecided

P.S. I know this is probably old news, so sorry for being a bit slow on the uptake. embarassed

The current poll standings - ten-four - remind me of CB radio. grin

I enjoy both their music but Elton John gets my vote by a country mile. I was brought up on Daniel and Crocodile Rock... cool
