LOVE SONGS is a career-spanning collection that takes great liberty with what it means to be a love song. It includes some of John's biggest, and most obvious, pop standards, such as "Your Song" and "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word," and reels in a few songs that have never appeared on an Elton John album, including his two Grammy-winning songs from THE LION KING and his duet with George Michael on "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me."
It also includes several ballads that stretch the boundary of love songdom. "Daniel" is a gorgeous ballad about some sort of loss; it was written as a tribute to a Vietnam vet. "Circle Of Life," one of THE LION KING tracks, is a pop song about growing up that expresses a wondrous love for the mystery of life without being about "love" at all. And the rock ballad "No Valentines," one of two new songs written for this collection with longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin, is a vicious breakup note. They almost all sound like classic love songs, though, because of John's gift for composing ballads and his sweet British tenor. No matter what he's singing about, it's easy to fall in love with the sound.
