About the Song
"Little Jeannie" is a song by Elton John and Gary Osborne, recorded by John and released as a single in 1980; the song appears on John's album 21 at 33. It reached #3 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 also became John's fifth #1 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart, and it was certified gold by the RIAA.[1] The song can be described as an uptempo ballad. Instrumentally, it strongly resembles John's earlier hit "Daniel", with an electric piano and an acoustic guitar dominating the arrangement. Ironically, the later song features only one of the same instrumentalists—drummer Nigel Olsson--as the earlier song. Even the piano, played by John himself on "Daniel", is here played by James Newton-Howard. Sir.    Download this sheet!

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.
