“YOUR SONG” – ELTON JOHN

19 May

Your Song” is a ballad composed and performed by English musician Elton John with lyrics by his longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin. It originally appeared on John’s self-titled second album (1970).
The song was released in the United States in October 1970 as the B-side to “Take Me to the Pilot”. Both received airplay, but “Your Song” was preferred by disc jockeys and replaced “Take Me to the Pilot” as the A-side, eventually making the top ten in several countries.

In 1998, “Your Song” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.[2] In 2003 the song was placed at number 468 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

A demo version was included on John’s 1990 box set album To Be Continued.[3] The song has been covered by a number of artists, including Ellie Goulding, whose version reached number two on the UK Singles Chart in late 2010.

    One of my favorite Elton John songs, since it is both a love song and a happy one! I also like, “Rocket Man” and “Daniel”, while sad, I love “Candle in the Wind,” too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :) Robin
