1. Crocodile Rock

Answer: Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player

Released in January, 1973, "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player" was Elton's first UK number one album, and his second to top the US chart. Two singles were released from the album, "Daniel" and "Crocodile Rock", both of which cracked the UK top five. The latter, about a fictional dance, was a live favourite for many years.
2. Rocket Man

Answer: Honky Chateau

"Honky Chateau", released in 1972, topped the US albums chart, and made it to number two in the UK. "Rocket Man" was released as a single and reached number two in Britain. The song was inspired by Ray Bradbury's book "The Illustrated Man".

4. Your Song

Answer: Elton John

"Elton John", released in 1970, was actually the singer's second album - "Empty Sky" was his debut release the previous year. The album made the top five in both the UK and USA. "Your Song" made the top ten on both sides of the Atlantic and has been an enduring favourite of his well into the 21st century.
5. Nikita

Answer: Ice on Fire

The 1985 album "Ice on Fire" made number three on the UK chart but didn't sell well in the USA, stalling at number 48. "Nikita", which featured George Michael on backing vocals, was about an East German border guard during the cold war, and reached number three on the UK singles chart.
6. Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word

Answer: Blue Moves

The 1976 album "Blue Moves" was Elton's second double album, after "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". It reached number three in both the UK and USA. "Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word", which peaked at UK number 11, was the follow-up to his number one duet with Kiki Dee, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart".
7. I'm Still Standing

Answer: Too Low for Zero

"Too Low for Zero" was released in 1983 and made it to number seven on the UK albums chart. "I'm still standing" reached number four on the UK singles chart, his highest placing since "Song for Guy" in 1978. The song also sold well in the USA, making it to number 12 on the Billboard chart.
8. Bennie and the Jets

Released in October, 1973, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" was Elton John's first double album and was available on yellow vinyl. It hit number one in both the UK and USA.

9. Sacrifice

Answer: Sleeping with the Past

Released in 1989, "Sleeping with the Past" was Elton John's first UK number one album since "Caribou" fifteen years earlier. In addition, the song "Sacrifice" gave him his first ever solo UK number one single - he had previously only ever topped the chart in a duet with Kiki Dee.
