The lyrics to this jazzy tune satirize the rock music scene of the early 1970's by telling the story of a fictitious band, "Bennie and the Jets", that the narrator is supposedly a fan of.
The hand claps on this song were overdubbed by producer Gus Dudgeon to give the song a "live" sound, which complimented the mindless fanaticism of the song's narrator for the band in question.
This song was a major hit for John and songwriting partner Bernie Taupin .
