BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
1984 Front Cover
“Sad Songs (Say So Much)” is a song by Elton John from the 1984 album Breaking Hearts. It is the closing track. It reached the number 5 position on the U.S. chart. The lyrics describe how you sometimes need to listen to old radio blues classics when you’re feeling down, or when someone beloved has left you. In the years since then it has had modest radio airplay compared to some of the bigger 1980s singles from John.
The music video, shot on a street in Rushcutters Bay, Sydney, featured John in which he did not wear glasses for portions nor did he play a piano although he did when this was recorded.
