FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS (el 28/11/13 a las 11:13 pm)
*On this day... 1970*
*Elton John releases "Your Song"*, and it was Elton's first single to
chart. Before he hit it big, he worked as a songwriter and studio musician,
and for a time was the warm-up act for Three Dog Night, who recorded this
song on their 1970 album It Ain't Easy (they had previously recorded
Elton's "Lady Samantha"). When it looked like Elton might finally make it
in the States with his own version of "Your Song," Three Dog Night chose
not to release it as a single in an effort to give this young upstart a
chance to make it on his own.
""It's like the perennial ballad 'Your Song,' which has got to be 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.
That was exactly what I was feeling. I was 17 years old and it was coming
from someone whose outlook on love or experience with love was totally new
"Now I could never write that song again or emulate it because the songs I
write now that talk about love coming from people my age usually deal with
broken marriages and where the children go. You have to write from where
you are at a particular point in time, and 'Your Song' is exactly where I
was coming from back then." - Bernie Taupin
IMO, one of the best songs... ever.
