I always found it interesting that Elton didn’t write this as a ballad. Instead, “Sad Songs” is a celebration of music as a common communicator, of the triumph over sadness that sharing allows. Doesn’t depart much from his last couple of hits, but I guess that’s why he’s still standing. The B side is a surprisingly tasty leftover from the Breaking Hearts sessions, “A Simple Man.” It’s a throwback to the piano music of the ‘70s, the last confession of a lone wolf sort of thing.
