"All Quiet on the Western Front" is a song by Elton John with lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It is the closing track of his 1982 album, Jump Up!. It was also released as a single in the U.K. without charting.

The song is basically about World War I, and could easily be influenced by the book of the same name. The song also ends in a big orchestral finale, which could be reminiscent of his earlier album closers such as "The King Must Die" and "Burn Down the Mission".
