Top Album Tracks: "Burn Down the Mission" by Elton John

We've presented several music specials, such as The Most Important Songs of the Rock Era*, The Top Christmas Songs of All-Time* and The Top 100 Albums of the Rock Era*, just to name a few, in the last year and a half.  We've published regular popular features, such as The Top Unknown/Underrated Songs of the Rock Era*, the daily Calendar and Lineup Histories of your favorite groups.

On this day, we introduce a new feature to Inside the Rock Era, which I'm sure you will like.  Similar to The Top Unknown Songs of the Rock Era*, but different in that these songs are not Top 10 quality, but great tracks in their own right.  They too deserve their moment in the sun!  When we accumulate enough of these, we'll create a Tab at the top of the website.

This is taken from the great 1971 Elton John album Tumbleweed Connection.  It was his second LP to be released.  You know about all his #1 songs, all his Top 10 hits, but this is what makes the man great--he was so unique in his early days, and with longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, he was so creative.
