My Ideal Set List

Charitybuzz is having an auction where the winner gets to choose Elton's set list for his upcoming charity concert at the Andy Roddick Charity Gala.

Although I personally cant afford the asking price, I thought it would be a great idea to suggest possible set lists. I sincerely hope that the winner of this auction uses this very special opportunity to get Elton to perform some rare and unique pieces.

Below is my ideal set list. I would love to hear from fellow fans on what their ideal 30 track solo set would be. Feel free to comment.

- The One
- Your Song
- Whispers
- Lucy in The Sky with Diamonds
- High Flying Bird
- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
- American Triangle
- Ticking
- Skyline Pigeon
- All That I'm Allowed
- We all Fall in Love Sometimes/ Curtains
- Someone Saved my Life Tonight
- Harmony
- Oh My Sweet Carolina
- Simple Life
- Roy Rogers
- Come Down in Time
- Elton's Song
- Original Sin
- Holiday Inn
- Blue Avenue
- The Bridge
- Ballad of the Boy in the Red Shoes
- Blue Eyes
- I'm Still Standing
- Blessed
- Electricity
- Circle of Life

- Funeral for a Friend/ Love Lies Bleeding
- Song For Guy/ The Last Song

P.S: This was extremely hard! There are many hits I would have loved to have put in, but why not use this opportunity to hear non-hits?
