|Elton John – Solar Prestige a Gammon Lyrics||2 years ago|
In Elizabeth Rosenthal's biography "His Song: The Musical Journey of Elton John", it is revealed that this song was inspired by "Sun King" from The Beatles Abbey Road album. Elton said: "I thought it would be great to write a song with English words that didn't mean a thing, but that sounded fantastic when put together..."
That fits to the statement swami7774 wrote.
|Elton John – I Need You To Turn To Lyrics||2 years ago|
That song is about a deep great love.
But that love is not really counterbalanced ("We're related in feeling but you're high above"), that means, that the person who sings the song is more in love with her/his parner than he/she is with her/him.
And the refrain is narrating about the love but also about the dependancy from that person on the loving partner.
|Elton John – Hey Ahab Lyrics||2 years ago|
Apparently this song is about the voyage from Captain Ahab for hunting the White Whale Moby Dick (due to the novel "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville, 1851.
But he also mentioned Jonah (third verse, third line: "Caught like Jonah forty fathoms down") what links to the bible (old testament) text from "Jonah and the Whale".
In any case there must be another deeper meaning behind these words.
Personally for me, and I hope it does not sound too histrionically: It is about life itself, what is hard for everybody and an everlasting chase to a methaphorically "White Whale". What could be a better Job, another relationship,...whatever. However he is saying "Hope allowed" and that's the important point!!
|Elton John – Grimsby Lyrics||2 years ago|
|I agree with harmonee, but that song is not only about the seaport Grimsby, UK. I think, it is mainly about a the Partition of India (..."the great divide") in 1947, when the british people came back to their hometowns. And the person in that song, was born in Grimbsy and loved that town. So that's what the song is about...|
