Johnny Remember Me" is a song which became a 1961 UK Singles Chart hit single for John Leyton, backed by The Outlaws. It was producer Joe Meek's first production. Recounting the haunting – real or imagined – of a young man by his dead lover, the song is one of the most noted of the 'death ditties' that populated the pop charts, on both sides of the Atlantic, in the early to mid-1960s

A few years ago I went to a restaurant in north London and sitting at the adjacent table was John Leyton. I was taken aback on two counts: firstly, it was John Leyton! And secondly, it was very obviously John Leyton – given the passing decades, he looked ridiculously similar to the star of The Great Escape and numerous sixties hits. The restaurant was only a few hundred yards from the scene of Leyton's greatest musical triumph – Joe Meek's studio on Holloway Road where he had recorded the immortal Johnny Remember Me in 1961. It'd be interesting to know if anyone ever called the star 'Johnny' rather 'John', as it must have felt like every other song he was given to record had 'Johnny' in the title, and most of them ended in loneliness and despair.

Picking Elton John's single greatest album is no easy task. The man worked like a maniac in the early 1970s, releasing 10 albums between 1970 and 1976. Those were his golden years, but he kept going and managed more than a few true creative comebacks in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. He started it a complete unknown and by the end, he was a global superstar with two of the best rock albums of the decade under his best. He'd also transformed into a powerhouse live act, backed only by bassist Dee Murray and drummer Nigel Olsson. They didn't have a guitarist, creating plenty of space for Elton to take lead on the piano.

Elton John is ranked number 132 in the overall artist rankings with a total rank score of 27,489. Members who like this artist also like: Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.

Culling the best Elton John songs from his extensive catalog feels like folly in a way. The knighted pop icon has nearly 60 Top 40 singles for good reason; both with and without lyricist Bernie Taupin, John has written a big pile o' great songs, with a variety that stretches from rockers to ballads, soul to show tunes and blues to symphonic grandeur. John may have sung about "waiting for the day he can spread his wings," but the guy who sang this earnest ballad from his 1969 debut album Empty Sky was already well-formed and ready to take flight - although nobody then could have known the heights he'd reach. 19. Elton John - "I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That". The lead single from 1988's Reg Strikes Back is taut, spare and propulsive, with some of the most inspired piano playing we'd heard from John in quite some time. 18. Elton John - "Electricity".
