From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Sick City" is a song by Elton John with lyrics written by Bernie Taupin. It is the B-side of the single release of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me", released in 1974. It later appeared on the 1995 remaster of the album Caribou. The song is about a groupie, and the life in 1970's New York which Bernie Taupin has had a love/hate relationship with from time time. Musically it features the Tower of Power Horns which appear on "Caribou". It also features wonderfully-altered piano tones courtesy of the ever-helpful Leslie speaker.
