220px-Elton_John_-_Captain_Fantastic_and_the_Brown_Dirt_Cowboy#2 – Elton John – “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” – (1975)

This song comes off of my favorite-titled Elton John album, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy – which was the first album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard 200. This is an almost-seven minute song by John and Bernie Taupin, one of the best songwriting duos of all time. It was a top five hit and is just generally a great song.
