Bad Blood by Neil Sedaka
Co-written by Neil too, this single had Elton John performs as an unaccredited backing singer. This song turned out to be most successful single for Neil in the U.S. The track came from his album The Hungry Years on Rocket Records, which was founded by Elton John.
Lyrics to Bad Blood
Island Girl by Elton John
So Elton was the guest vocals on the previous No. 1, and now he has his own No. 1 under his own name. Elton took this single from the album Rock Of The Westies, which was his tenth studio album. The album is just a joke reversal of the words West of the Rockies The song is about a male prostitute who wants to go back to Jamaica. Amazingly Elton managed to get this into the No. 1 single chart, without people really understanding the contents.
