§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: Philadelphia Freedom

{Song #2 « Song #3 » Song #4}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Song #3 is Philadelphia Freedom, sung by Reginald Kenneth Dwight (AKA Sir Elton Hercules John).

"Philadelphia Freedom" was released by Elton John as a single in 1975. The song was one of John's numerous number-one U.S. hit singles during the early and mid-1970s, which saw his recordings dominating the charts.

What can anyone say about Sir Elton that hasn't already been said? Perhaps the only thing worth repeating is that back in the 1970s (when his "Philadelphia Freedom" was released) freedom was something to be cherished by all who had it, and desperately sought by those who didn't.
