Description : Elton John - Little Jeannie (Live At Madison Square Garden, NY, USA / 2000)

Amazingly, Elton had not performed this number live since it came out twenty years earlier! ‘Little Jeannie’, from the 1979 album ’21 At 33’, was his highest-charting US hit between 1976 and 1988. On the night, John Jorgenson swaps out his guitar to tackle the iconic alto sax solo, while Nigel Olsson steps out from behind his drums to play tambourine and sing backing vocals. You can tell from the audience shots in this video, and the goose bumps on your arms, this one is magic.

"Little Jeannie" (spelled "Little Jeanie" on the cover of certain single releases) is a song written by Elton John and Gary Osborne, recorded by John, and released as a single in 1980 from John's album 21 at 33. It reached number three on the Billboard pop chart in the United States, becoming the singer's biggest U.S. hit since 1976's "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" (a duet with singer Kiki Dee), and his highest-charting solo hit since 1975's "Island Girl".

It became John's fifth #1 on the U.S. Adult contemporary chart, and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It peaked at #3 in both Billboard and Cash Box.

In Canada, it hit #1 one on the RPM 100 national singles chart.[4]

Composed in the key of B flat, which allowed its notable saxophone solo to ring out, the song can be described as an uptempo ballad similar in feel, with its electric piano, to his earlier 1973 hit, "Daniel". In the US, it would be John's highest-charting single co-written with Gary Osborne, while in the UK, where the song only reached number 33, "Blue Eyes" would eventually hold that honour.

Despite its impressive performance in the US charts, Elton John has rarely performed "Little Jeannie" live, doing so only on his 1980 tour and during 2000's One Night Only concerts.
