you heard Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting by Elton John?

I was in the basement of the 4-H leader. They had a juke box with actual 45's. I would play that song every chance I could. I think the year would have been maybe 1980 or so.

Ah, good times...

None of you were even a twinkle in your parents' eyes. The song is from 1973.

The song is from 1973.

Thank you Sad.

I was in 6th grade and just getting into Elton John. I knew it wasn't in 1980 because that was the year I graduated high school.

Riding around in the front seat of our station wagon with no seat belt. Those vinyl seats were slippery, tasted the dashboard more than once.

Love that song.

Probably in the rec room watching my brothers and sisters play ping pong. They never let me play - I had to chase down the run-away balls.

I was in 3rd grade. I don't think I truly appreciated that song until high school. Love all of Elton John's music!

Why didn't I think of that, with respect to MY sister ...

Nope, i have heard alot of his songs, but not this one.

To be fair though, I grew up with either polka, classic, or country...soooo

I love the song...but I don't have any idea where I was when I first heard it....and I was born in 76....so....maybe on the radio while my mom was nursing me?

1983. I was at the roller rink on our typical friday nights rollerskating, looking at boys (didnt dare talk to them) and eating cheap pizza.
I was thirteen. Good times.
