#257 ORIGINAL SIN Elton John
The album 'Songs from the West Coast' was released in 2001. "Original Sin" was 1 of its tracks, all of which were written by Elton John with regular collaborator Bernie Taupin. The beautifully executed ballad features John on piano; with producer Patrick Leonard on keyboards and strings arranged and conducted by Paul Buckmaster. Released as a single in 2002, the song cracked the British Top 40. It is 1 of the most beautiful songs by John in this century. 

This is a list made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice. I have excluded songs from the last few years in order to get a better idea of a song's lasting impression. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
2 new instalments are added each day (every 12 hours) with 1 of the remaining 300 songs as well as moving down from #1201 to 1500, with 5 of those songs added daily.
