"Elton John's Love Songs (1996) isn't really all love songs; it is a quaint, thoughtfully assembled and enjoyable collection of unique songs from Elton's long and varied music career.

I originally bought this for the two songs from Disney's The Lion King (Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Circle Of Life). It was a nice surprise to find Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me (w/ George Michael) here, too. It's a great song, and this live version sounds great.

Of course, Your Song is here, and it's one of my favorite songs by EJ. It's a simple little tune, but it's perfect in it's simplicity.

The somber Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word and Someone Saved My Life Tonight are both here, and even though they're hardly "love songs", I like them, too. Daniel and Candle In The Wind aren't "love songs" either, but they're both EJ classics so their inclusion here isn't a problem, and they add depth to the collection.

Blessed, Blue Eyes, Believe, and The One represent some of the best of Elton's 1980s and 1990s work. The production and sound of these songs is quite different from Elton's earlier work, and that contrast gives the album a wide range of texture that adds energy to the set.

There are also two new songs, You Can Make History (Young Again) and No Valentines.

All in all, Love Songs is a nice mix of well produced and mature love songs (mostly) from over 25 years in the fabulous career of a great entertainer.
