I have an Elton John pack code for Xbox 360.
I'm looking for someone who doesn't have the pack, and i want them to tell me their favorite Elton John and why (be descriptive as to why the song impacts you)

:) hopefully this is allowed!

    Saturday Nights Alright for Fighting, mainly because I love the lyrics and love the tone of this one more than a typical Elton John song. He can do awesome rocking songs just as well as he can do a crazy ballad.

    Hopefully I won't get banned for entering.

    Benny and the Jets. I don't understand a freaking word of it but I still love it.

    Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting, because of that awesome guitar riff that for some reason other Elton John songs lack. And it's just so upbeat and fun!

    It's upbeatness is really exciting and it turns any night walk on a Saturday into am exciting stroll.

    Normally, I'd say Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting because one of the greatest things in the world is to hear Nigel Olsson open the song by beating on tin pails with raw hot dogs.

    But for now, I'll just go with either Grey Seal because it's pure word salad with a terrific piano riff (and thus not available for Rock Band to enjoy) or All The Girls Love Alice because I remember fondly a teacher I had a thing for *enthusiastically* describing the song. And hey, hey, hey, you know what I mean.

    My favorite song is "Daniel," and it is indeed very personal for me.

    Daniel is my youngest brother's name and he has been...troubled over the years. He started using drugs when he was about 14 and has dealt with a lot of mental instability over the years. When I was in college he would call me up and keep me on the phone for hours, telling me about his suicidal thoughts and being very emotionally manipulative. I would simultaneously be infuriated and distraught, and constantly worried about getting "the call." When "Daniel" came on the radio, lyrics like "Daniel my brother" and "God it looks like like Daniel. Must be the clouds in my eyes" were haunting and almost always made me well up. Thankfully he's been in a (mostly) better place for some years now, but it's still one of those songs that instantly pulls me back to a very trying time.

    Hopefully it's not too tacky for me to mine emotional trauma to try to win a DLC code!

    My favorite would be Crocidile Rock just because it's always had some pretty cool lyrics to it. Just wish I had a code to export Lego RB to play it.

    BTW, don't give me this Elton John code. I don't have a 360 to redeem it on. But if you by chance happen to have an extra Lego RB export code for PS3, I'll be more than happy to accept it :)

    Easily "Your Song". When I first heard the song I just fell in love with it. My favorite line is, "If I was a sculpture, but then again, no" just because of the way he brings up a topic and immediately throws it away because he thought of a better way to express his love. The chorus is just so beautiful. Just a great way to say the three magic words. Elton's singing on this song is superb, not that he isn't great on any other track, but it just sticks out from his catalog. Not really much else to say, but I love this song, and Elton is one of my top 5 solo artists, #3 to be exact.

    Thank you VERY much!

    I just told my wife that in all honesty, your giving me that free DLC code feels like a small measure of karmic payment from the universe for dealing with my bro all those years.

    Also, it feels nice to win something having been a routine entrant in HMX giveaways that has never won (though I have scored a pair of codes from authoring groups).

    Anyway, thanks again!
