All Quiet on the Western Front is a song by
Elton Johnwith 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".
