Subject: Rearranged Elton John Songs (DONE - IN RECORD TIME!)

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 07/19/07 at 2:28 pm

Hi gang!

For this quiz, I have taken the titles of 16 Elton John songs and scrambled the letters.  Your job is to unscramble them and reveal the correct titles.

I realize that EJ has a huge catalogue and that I'm missing many of his Top 40 hits here...but these take a while to do.  If all goes well, I may do a Part 2.  :D

Limit: 3 (for now)

Good Luck!  :)

#16 seems to be Crocodile Rock, except that the "E" is missing in your scramble. 

but #15 is surely "A Word In Spanish"

and #4 is "Little Jeannie"

So it is!  :-[

Hm...I guess I'll just have to find a place to add that 'E'...

...but yes, you are correct!  :)
