Lennon & McCartney, Frey & Henley, and Dozier & Holland all wrote songs together that would fill a few days worth of airplay. Another very successful duo was that of Elton John and Bernie Taupin, the two writers of today’s song Grey Seal. From the swirling piano to the almost classical interludes, this song rocks. Elton’s 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road sold over 31 million copies worldwide! Needless to say this was a landmark year and an album which we will be listening to for years to come.
