About the Song
"Philadelphia Freedom" is a song released by Elton John (as "Elton John Band") as a single in 1975. The song was one of John's numerous number-one U.S. hit singles during the early and mid-1970s, which saw his recordings dominating the charts. The song was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin as a favor to Elton's friend, tennis star Billie Jean King. King was part of the Philadelphia Freedoms tennis team. The song features orchestral arrangements by Gene Page. The B-Side was a live version of "I Saw Her Standing There" recorded at Madison Square Garden in 1974 and sung by John Lennon, who joined Elton John on stage during the Thanksgiving Night concert in New York City. The B-Side is credited to The Elton John Band, but, because of the Lennon vocals, under the song title, the record label states, "Featuring John Lennon."
