There's a selection of classic Elton John songs coming to Rock Band next week, bringing a three-pack of the "entertainer" and "living music legend's" best-known tracks from his 70s era, in which he arguably produced some of his best music.

"The Bitch is Back" from 1974's 'Caribou' leads the pack, with "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" the first single from the same album also available to download.

The uptempo "I'm Still Standing" is also up for grabs as a Rock Band single for the first time, and all three tracks are included on the 'Rocket Man - Number Ones' greatest hits compilation.

Playing any of these three new songs will earn you double coins in Rock Band Blitz. Check out the tracks below:

Elton John Pack 01 - 440 Microsoft Points (160 Microsoft Points each. X = 80 Microsoft Points per track for a Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade O= support for keyboards)

  • “The Bitch is Back” – Elton John O
  • “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” – Elton John O
  • “I’m Still Standing” – Elton John O

(All tracks are original master recordings)

Look out for them on the Xbox Live Marketplace from December 18th.

Um, they do know that the song “I’m Still Standing” is on Rock Band Blitz? Plus you can get 25 songs for $15 compared to paying $50 for all 25 if they re-use these songs for future DLC.

@5, if you only wanted the one song from Blitz, it wouldn't be worth paying $15 for the $2 song. It's nice that they are including it a la carte. Tracks like this war going to bring back memories of seeing the man live.

They should release the RB Blitz songs as singles, and not reused in new packs, in my opinion. Since I already have blitz, I'm essentially paying 13 points more for each song than at the discounted pack price. Not a huge deal, but wish they would take this into consideration for people who buy a lot of songs. They should of included a different 3rd song.

Happy we got great packs the last couple weeks, so can't complain :) Will end up buying both probably this week also.

Oh ffs. I've been saying they need more Elton, and this is what they give us? Where's Rocketman? Goodbye Yellow Brick Road? Daniel? Candle In The Wind? Bennie and the Jetts? Levon? Honky Cat? Tiny Dancer? Empty Garden? I can go on all day!

If our love was a circus, you'd be a clown by now.

Already have I'm Still Standing, but the other two I will definitely check out.

@#9: May I add Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding to your list?

The Bitch is Back will be a payday purchase for me.

@12 You know it. Too many Elton songs to list! Atleast it's a start knowing they're atleast putting 'some' Elton songs on there. Gives me hope for maybe a greatest hits album? :P
