Elton John – „Friends“ (film soundtrack) – March 1971

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

Day 5:

The Album: Friends (film soundtrack), March 1971.

The Song: Michelle’s song.

Always trying out new supports, Elton John and Bernie Taupin decided in 1970 to compose a movie soundtrack. Friends, a film by Lewis Gilbert, tells the story of Paul Harrison, the son of a wealthy English businessman living in Paris, and Michelle Latour, a 14-year-old French girl.

The teenagers, after meeting in the French capital, decide to run away together. They travel across France to the idyllic landscapes of the Camargue where Michelle’s family owns a house. There, alone together, they will fall in love and… (no spoiler)

If the film get a nomination for the Golden Globe Award (Foreign Film) in 1972, the famous American film critic Roger Ebert had a really bad opinion about it, blaming its portrayal of teenage sex.

With this soundtrack, Bernie Taupin illustrates again his talent for writing beautiful love songs, and Elton John his own for composing them.

If only we were old enough

„Then they might leave us both alone

So take my hand in your hand

Say it’s great to be alive

No one’s going to find us

No matter how they try

No one’s going to find us

It’s wonderful so wild beneath the sky”
