POLL: Best Elton John Single

August 2, 2023

Since at least March 1968, the world has been gifted with original music by Reginald Dwight, the artist better known as Elton John. From the 60s up to the 2020s, Mr. John would go on to have one of the most successful music careers in pop history, spanning 31 studio albums, 10 soundtracks, 5 live albums, 16 compilation albums, and a slew of awards and accolades. Now that Elton has recently retired from live performing, the Great Pop Culture Debate wants to look back at his inimitable songbook and attempt to determine the Best Elton John Single of all time. And we need YOUR opinions to do it!

Below find every publicly released Elton John single we could think of, listed in chronological order. If you’re taking this on a mobile device, we recommend clicking here for ease of use. We stuck to singles, because if we listed every Elton John song, this list would be hundreds of songs long. If there’s a specific song you can’t seem to find, we recommend using Ctrl+F to search for it. 

Did we miss your favorite Elton John single? Add it to the survey in the space provided below! Then send the poll to your Elton John-loving friends and have them chime in on their favorite songs. The more votes, the better balanced the bracket!

This poll will close on November 14, 2023. Make sure to get in your votes by then!

The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed in Season 9 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in Spring 2024. Find out more at greatpopculturedebate.com.
