For his first album of the 1990s, Elton proved that he would still be a viable force in pop music with the title track and first single from ‘The One.’ Elton’s elegant piano playing was the perfect compliment to some of Bernie Taupin’s most romantic, yet simple, lyrics: “When stars collide like you and I/No shadows block the sun/You're all I've ever needed/Oh, baby you're the one.”.
