I used to love that album...especially 'Someone Saved My Life Tonight'. EJ's always been a favourite.

Just discovered some old LP's of EJ's that I thought had got thrown out in our last move. Trouble is I don't have a stereo to play them on any more. They are not getting thrown away because of a minor detail like that.

He wrote the song after he split up with a girl he met in Sheffield. He was days away from marrying her...when his friend talked him out of it. I think the friend was Long John Baldry.

I always thought that song was written after Bernie Taupin had pulled EJ's head out of the gas oven when he had made a half hearted attempt to do away with himself.

After they split he did try to commit suicide. If you read the lyrics of the song you can see it is about him escaping marriage.

And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye
