forthcoming 'Revamp' tribute album. It was John's 63rd UK Top 40 hit, peaking at #4 on the UK Singles e song was included as a bonus track on the UK re-issue of Elton's album Peachtree Road. The song is sung by Billy Elliot in the stage production at his audition for a place at The Royal Ballet School in London. "Written in the Stars" is a single released in 1999 by Elton John and LeAnn Rimes.
This is the kind of thing only an absolute Elton John fanatic - or a 70s disco junkie - could possibly enjoy. "Crocodile" was seriously overplayed at the time, but twenty-five years later it's easier to appreciate the drop-dead perfect arrangement and Elton's wonderfully out-there falsetto. But Elton doesn't completely bury his talent: "Pinky" is lovely soft rock, "I've Seen The Saucers" is appropriately eerie, "Stinker" is foot-stomping fun, and his energy and the TOP horns almost redeem the by-the-numbers misogyny of "You're So Static." Overall, though, this is only.
