Your Song" is a song composed and performed by English musician Elton John with lyrics by his longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin. It originally appeared on John's eponymous second studio album (which was released in 1970). The song was released in the United States in October 1970 as the B-side to "Take Me to the Pilot".
Produced by Gus Dudgeon.
Elton John had played keyboards on several of the Hollies' tracks, including their hit song " He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," and the English band had hoped to record this song themselves. We knew Reg because he was a staff writer with a music publisher we used. He was writing songs well before he became famous," recalled their guitarist/vocalist Tony Hicks to The Daily Mail June 15, 2013. This error is apparent on the entire ELTON JOHN album. Audra from Columbus, Fl brings tears to my eyes. Stephanie from Dallas, Tx My husband and I named this "our song".
Elton John once said of this song, "I don't think I've written a love song as good since. Your Song" was first released by Three Dog Night on their album "It Ain't Easy" (1970). Elton John performed as an opening act for them at the time and allowed them to record it. They did not release it as a single, though, because they wanted John to have a go with it. When John Lennon heard this song for the first time he thought, "Great, that's the first new thing that's happened since we (The Beatles) happened
Elton’s second album features one of his biggest hits, Your Song, and was nominated for one of the music industry’s highest honours: a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. The album also was a commercial success, reaching on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and was certified gold by the RIAA within a year of its release. It peaked at on the UK Album Chart, spending 22 weeks on that list Music & Llyrics by ELTON JOHN & BERNIE TAUPIN Produced by GUS DUDGEON Orchestral Arrangements by PAUL BUCKMASTER Recorded at Trident Studios, London, UK.
Listen to Elton John's 'Your Song'. Taupin was only 17 when he penned the lyrics and had very little experience with romance. It’s the voice of someone who hasn’t experienced love in any way," he noted. It’s a very virginal song. In a 1989 interview with Music Connection magazine, Taupin said Your Song had one of the most naïve and childish lyrics in the entire repertoire of music, but I think the reason it still stands up is because it was real at the time. John has performed Your Song at almost every live performance of his career, including 2018's royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. What can I say? It's a perfect song. It gets better every time I sing it, the singer remarked when looking back on the track's legacy.
