Running just 2:45, this is the last song on the double album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
, Elton's best-selling studio album and one of his most acclaimed. "Harmony" was used as the B-side of "Bennie And The Jets
" but not issued as a single itself. "We could have taken singles off that album for years," Elton said.
Despite being merely an album cut, "Harmony" gained a fervent following, especially on the New York City radio station WOR, it won the "Battle of the Hits," voted on by listeners, for 33 consecutive weeks.
