Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

Bowie will win this round, and probably deserves to...but I voted for Elton, because I love his and Bernie's songwriting, and Elton's piano playing knocks me out.

Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

Elton. I like some Bowie songs, but he's just never been a guy that I want to sit down and listen to a whole album of (other than maybe Ziggy).

Elton never had any credibility in my book. I always thought he delivered nothing but middle-of-the-road sing-along pop for AM radio.

If this album is sing-along radio pop, punch me:



It's kick-ass piano rock-n-roll in my book!!!

I wouldn't agree with that. His early albums were quite brilliant.

Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

Bowie's music is more interesting. Elton does have some great songs, but Bowie has more.

I guess I listen to Bowie's stuff more than Elton John's.

Well David Bowie's recordings seem to have more legs anyway.
