Amoreena by Elton John

Album: Tumbleweed ConnectionReleased: 1970
  • In this song Elton sings about fond memories of a girl he once knew. The Tumbleweed Connection album has prairie theme, which shows up in this song with images of cattle, cornfields and hay.
  • This plays in the opening scene of the Al Pacino film Dog Day Afternoon. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France, for above 2)
  • The name "Amoreena" implies love, as "Amor" signifies love in many languages (note the English word "Amorous").

Hats off to the most ingenius, prolific and entirely successful songwriting duo ever! Oh, and I DID name my daughter "Amoreena!"Robin - Milford, Nj
His first manager, John Reid, had a little girl named Amoreena that most likely inspired Bernie to use this title. My band Integr8d Soul Rocket, Man plays this song: my favorite by Sir Elton!Angela - San Diego, Ca
We used to have an old radiogram that had great bass sound. I always loved listening to Amoreena on it - Dee Murray was such an unrecognised talent. Love this whole album, always rated it as Elton's best.Paul - Belfast, United Kingdom
What a wonderful song. I recently felt as though the song may have a deeper meaning - that "Amoreena" had possibly met a tragic end maybe in an auto accident or an accident of some kind -on listening to the lyrics " Amoreena's in the cornfield brightening the daybreak" it brought to mind how people often leave memorial markers at the roadsides where loved ones have tragically perished. I don't know it is just something that crossed my mind that I wanted to share.Jay - London, On
This song is written and sung so well, I'm surprised a whole lot of couples didn't end up naming their baby girls "Amoreena"...it is beautiful.Camille - Toronto, Oh
Written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, It is amazing how two Brits can capture Americana so well..Great song from an equally great album...Jim - Long Beach, Ca
Agreed. This is a fine song.Kevin - Reading , Pa
Great song great album.Guy - Chicago, Il
I could swear Elton is singing this love song to a cow. 'Tumbleweed Connection' is undoubtedly one of the greatest albums ever.Lester - New York City, Ny
One of my favorites. Taupin had such a grasp of the American heartland, it's almost scary. The best Elton song that nobody knows!Bryan - Flint, Mi
