Sixty Years On is one of the most sophisticated songs on the artist's self-titled album (Elton John, 1970), played practically live with the orchestra, in one of the purest Baroque styles. Genre regarded, it is to be cataloged in the symphonic progressive rock.
The story behind the lyrics is about a blind war veteran, presented as a metaphor for a man growing old and unwanted, unappreciated.
The strings are very evident throughout the piece and the ingenious arrangements of Paul Buckmaster make themselves felt. Also noteworthy is the harp which is highlighted in the introduction. The melody is decidedly gloomy, as well as the lyrics of Bernie, dark like almost all the songs on the album.
