With the recent release of the Elton John biopic, Rocketman, I’ve had a lot of requests for his songs! So I thought I would start with one of his most well-known and well-loved songs.
The song was composed by Elton, with lyrics written by Bernie Taupin. The song was originally released in 1970 by American band, Three Dog Night, a band that Elton John used to open for. Elton then released it himself and it charted in the top ten in both America and the UK.
In 1998, the song was inducted into the Grammy hall of fame and in 2004, it was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. It has been covered many times.
Have a great week everyone! 🙂
