‘Part-Time Love’ by Elton John – Classic Hit or Miss

Part-Time Love” is a song written by Elton John with lyrics by Gary Osborne. It is the sixth track off his 1978 album, A Single Man. It is also the opening track of side two. It proved to be one of the most popular singles the pair wrote, along with 1982′s “Blue Eyes”. It was banned in the Soviet release of the album along with another song, “Big Dipper”.The song opens with a jaunty piano, and then goes into the main riff, an uptempo disco-flavoured party song. The lead guitar played here is by John’s long-time bandmate Davey Johnstone. The song features strings in such a way that it could easily be referred to as a disco anthem. Ray Cooper also appears on percussion that flows together with the drums and bass. The bridge in the song is very messy, fitting in with the lyric.

Due to the disco craze at the time, the song wasn’t popular, and John only played it in his live sets of 1978 and 1979. #21 in the US and #15 in the UK in 1978….
