Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day
Elton was a huge Billie Jean King fan and that’s why this song was born. You may remember the epic “battle of the sexes” between Billie Jean and Bobby Riggs in a televised match watched by millions of Americans. She defeated him and became a household name. Later, she became a coach for the World Team Tennis League for the Philadelphia Freedoms. Elton promised to write her a song after a hard-fought match and it hit number on this day in 1975. Caller 10 when we play it again wins Engelbert Humperdink tickets for the show tomorrow night at the Inn of the Mountain Gods. Make sure your schedule allows it before calling in to win! This prize is not transferrable…GO ENGELBERT!
