Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding by Elton John

but gdpreston was first  

... 199 ... This is pure rock theatre. Years ahead of Bohemian Rhapsody. The first Jam I ever posted was the title track of the first album I ever bought; Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. My 2nd album was Dark Side of the Moon and this is from my 3rd album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Elton's voice may not be what it was, but at 60? Hey ho!   1

First heard this on a John Peel show. Elton recorded some ace songs in the 70s :-)

Theme: My Birthday (1973) There were a lot of hits off this album in 1973. The only thing that stopped them from releasing more singles was that Elton had a new record coming out in 1974 and they didn't want this album to get in the way of it. "Harmony" "All the Young Girls Love Alice" and this track were left out of rotation here in the US so they could hype Caribou with "Don't Let the Sun go Down on Me." This is my favorite track.
