The Hillary Clinton song list for Elton John

April 9, 2008 |  1:34 pm

Barack Obama may have Oprah, but Hillary Clinton has Elton John, and tonight the British pop/rock star does his thing at a solo concert in New York that will funnel lots of cash into her presidentSir Elton John performs April 9 2008 to benefit the Democratic presidential campaign of New York Senator Hillary Clintonial campaign coffers.

This morning, the clever people who crank out ABC's daily political review, The Note, offered some nominees for the least likely John hit his audience will hear. Their list included “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and “Candle in the Wind.” (It included another one, which we'll simply link to here.)

One sure bet for a rousing reception, given the must-win status of the looming Pennsylvania primary for Clinton: "Philadelphia Freedom" (a numero uno tune on the charts back in the mid-'70s).
