|"The Bitch Is Back", by Elton John|
The song was inspired not by John or Taupin directly, but rather by Bernie Taupin's wife of the time. When discussing the Caribou album, Elton John threw one of his legendary tantrums. This led to Taupin's wife to claim "the bitch is back". Taupin then wrote the lyric.
Musically, the song originally was written in A flat major, but is today performed live a half step lower in the key of G major. The saxophone solo in the middle is nowadays usually performed by synthesizers, while a guitar solo occasionally substitutes, as can be seen in the concert videos One Night Only and Live in Australia, respectively. This song was banned on several radio stations, in the United States and elsewhere, due to the use of the word "bitch".
