    "The last song" by Elton John is such a beautiful song. The video was absolutly great, in a tear-jerking way. He was singing to his father in the hospital.

    "The Last Song" is definitely a well-written song. Very sad too.

    I always thought that the song was about a father whose son was dying of AIDS, and all the things the son told the father before he died. I could be mistaken, though.

    I didnt ever hear that song by Elton John....

    I liked every song on that list EXCEPT THE ONE'S FROM THE 90s,i cant really say any of them were that good......

    But i do wanna hear "The last song" seeing the comments about it (Elton John is a grand singer,im sorry his father wasnt well @ the time)

    I know the song. It's very sad. I thought that because Elton is gay, that maybe it had to do with the astrangement between him and his Dad. Any way you look at it it's sad. Non of this takes away from the fact that Elton is a great singer, and a fantastic writer.
