//Elton John – „Elton John“ – April 1970

One week with… Elton John! 7 days, 7 albums, 7 songs.

Day 2:

The Album: Elton John / April 1970.

The Song: Your Song. Elton John’s first single to chart and first big success. The story tells that he composed the melody in 20 minutes. Concerning the lyrics, the songwriter Bernie Taubin said: „The original lyric was written very rapidly on the kitchen table of Elton’s mother’s apartment in Northwood Hills in the suburbs of London, if I recall, on a particularly grubby piece of exercise paper”. Taubin was 17 at that time, which explains the sweet naivety from the lyrics. A crazy story for one of the most beautiful (and covered, Ellie Goulding, Lady Gaga) love-song ever.

And I spare of course a special thought for the great Ewan McGregor and his unforgettable performance in the movie Moulin Rouge!
