I asked my mom if she knew the song and she said yes and that it was a favorite of my fathers.The song embodies what my wife's cousin did to her husband after 22 years of marriage.It changed everything I knew about what music could be.In some ways it helped me through that terrible time as I could escape completely into the music.Charles, I too, was known in school as the "Elton" freak, and 30 years later, at class reunions the subject still comes up..Elton's still around so apparently we know talent when we hear it!These two songs melded together make a masterpiece & I never tire of hearing them, either. But what really gets me on this song, and on all the other songs on this album (especially "Grey Seal"), is the amazing bass playing.Dee Murray has to be one of the most underrated/unknown bass players of all time.Though Funeral For a Friend and Love Lies Bleeding were not originally intended to go together, these were back in the days of album sequencing.
He lost a bet with Elton and had to pay up by sitting in with the Elton John Band for three songs their Thanksgiving '74 show at Madison Square Garden.They carried it to the center of the stage where at the precise time a "body" sat up and continued to sing Love Lies Bleeding.It was the perfect Halloween party.-Monk, Nipomo, CAI agree with Brad from Tennessee: the live version from Here and There is better. The double disk set which was released years later was remixed and the song suffers.I had no idea it was Elton John until much later in the song obviously but I was riveted.I stayed in my car in the cold and listened to the whole song.
Because of the multi-layered sequencing, we only play "Love Lies Bleeding" live; with permission it might be neat to play a recording of "Funeral" first (so we can take a break at the same time, rather than simply swapping out songs).
