Amoreena” is a song written by singer/songwriter Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin, and is the eighth track on John’s 1970 Tumbleweed Connection album. A live version is also available on the 1995 reissue of the 11-17-70 album. The song accompanied the opening credits of the 1975 film Dog Day Afternoon, one of only two songs heard throughout the film. “Amoreena” is also the name of John’s god-daughter.

Amoreena”, which appears to be about a young man yearning for his distant loved one, employs the same country-inspired rock sound which characterizes much of the Tumbleweed Connection album. John’s piano riffs and chords are prominent throughout the mix, especially in the song’s introduction, described by Rolling Stone magazine as “just great.” (read the complete article at Wikipedia)
