Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player is the sixth studio album by Elton John. Released in January, 1973 by DJM Records, it was John's sixth normal studio album release, and was his second straight No. 1 album in the US, yielding his first No. 1 single in both the US and Canada: "Crocodile Rock"

Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player is the sixth studio album by Elton John.

Elton’s sixth studio album was also his second straight album in the US. It went on to peak at in several other countries including Australia, Canada, Italy, Norway and the UK, where it stayed for six weeks. This album contains the song Crocodile Rock, which became Elton’s first single in the US and Canada, as well as the extremely popular track, Daniel. eacher I Need You4:10. lues For Baby And Me5:39. ave Mercy On The Criminal5:58. m Going To Be A Teenage Idol3:56.

For me "Piano Player" is a solid album and although not Elton's best, it is mostly quite good.

After the success of Honky Chateau, Elton John decided to once again use Strawberry Studios in France to record his next album, titled Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player" released in January 1973. The album opens with "Daniel," a mellotron and electric piano driven number featuring a lyric which Bernie Taupin has described as "one of our most mis-interpreted lyrics. The reason for this was when the lyric was written, Elton deciding the song was too long and crossed out the last verse which explained the whole song
