Throwback: Elton John-I Don’t Wanna To Go On With You Like That

Elton John called Reg Strikes Back a comeback album because it was a response to unfavorable press coverage and his first after having throat surgery. “I Don’t Wanna To Go On With You Like That” had one of the better videos for the era and John’s fiery refusal to be in a non-monogamous relationship was unforgettable.  Reg Strikes Back is usually disparaged because it is not from his wildly successful ’70s output but “I Don’t Wanna Go On With You Like That” was one of his last hits of the time and there were other underrated songs from the collection like “Camera Never Lies” and “A Word In Spanish.” At this point, John’s 21st album was already more than most artists create in a lifetime and he still had much more to say in the ’90s’. In 2016, Elton John’s 30th studio album, Wonderful Crazy Night was released to the satisfaction of the critics and fans. On April 6th, two tribute albums of Elton John songs recorded by various artists Revamp and Restoration will be released.
