    Wonderfully arranged and written: and devastatingly beautiful. Favorite from the album, and one of my favorite Elton tunes overall.

    This is a very underrated song from the excellent album, Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player. "Daniel" was the big hit from this album, but now I prefer High Flying Bird, even though it is such a sad song.

    This album has a few gems on it... This is my favorite song on the record. Seems like i was the only one who thought it was special.. I repeatedly played it all time w my friends who didnt share the same enthusiasm for this specific song.. Anyway great song!!!!
