I define a sad song as one that stops me in my tracks every time I hear it. I remember being a little kid and hearing this performed at Princess Diana's funeral on television. The lyrics are quite possibly the most elegant I've ever heard.
This was written following John Lennon's death. John Lennon and Elton John were great friends, and this song was so emotional for Elton that he rarely ever played it in concert.
