About the Song
"The Bitch is Back" is a song by Elton John, written with Bernie Taupin. It was the second single released from his 1974 album Caribou, and reached number 4 in the United States and number 15 in the United Kingdom. The song was twice recorded by Tina Turner: for her Rough album in 1978 and again for the John/Taupin tribute album Two Rooms in 1991. Turner also performed the song in her live show in the late 1970s, and with Elton John at the VH1 Fashion and Music Awards 1995 and VH1 Divas Live '99. The song was inspired not by John or Taupin directly, but rather by Bernie Taupin's wife of the time. When discussing the Caribou album, Elton John threw one of his legendary tantrums. This led to Taupin's wife to claim "the bitch is back". Taupin then wrote the lyric. Musically, the song originally was written in A flat major, but is today performed live a half step lower in the key of G major..    Download this sheet!

In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.
