On Elvis Costello's interview show, he and Elton John spent a while talking about what a fantastic songwriter she was. Sir E said that she was a big influence on his own early work, by showing that instead of just following rules (e.g., verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge), it was valid to create a unique structure for each song.
