Sir Elton Hercules John CBE (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, 25 March 1947) is an English singer, songwriter, composer, pianist, record producer, and occasional actor. He has worked with lyricist Bernie Taupin as his songwriter partner since 1967; they have collaborated on more than 30 albums to date.

I’ve been a follower and fan for many years. I was able to watch him live, in concert this year in Orlando, Florida. He was incredible. He played his piano and sang without intermission for almost three hours. 

I’ve followed his achievements in the music field, his knighthood, his personal life, his marriage to David Furnish and his (I presume), most recent welcoming of his sons to his and his lifetime partner’s life. 

I want to think that he had this song in mind … thinking about the future and visualizing his sons.

~BLESSED~

Hey you, you’re a child in my head
You haven’t walked yet
Your first words have yet to be said
But I swear you’ll be blessed

I know you’re still just a dream
your eyes might be green
Or the bluest that I’ve ever seen
Anyway you’ll be blessed

And you, you’ll be blessed
You’ll have the best
I promise you that
I’ll pick a star from the sky

Pull your name from a hat
I promise you that, promise you that, promise you that
You’ll be blessed

I need you before I’m too old
To have and to hold
To walk with you and watch you grow
And know that you’re blessed

“Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”

(a trip down memory lane)

Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” is a song written by English singer-songwriter Elton John and his lyricist Bernie Taupin.

It was released as the first single from Elton John’s 1974 album Caribou; it was released that year during the latter half of May in the United Kingdom, and on 10 June in the United States. The song found further success in 1991 in a version recorded live as a duet between John and George Michael which reached number 1 in the UK and US.

In the song, Elton sings to someone he has helped and from whom he is now experiencing rejection:

I can’t light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I’m growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life
Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light
Don’t let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see
I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
I can’t find, oh the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don’t discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal

1991 George Michael and Elton John version

As successful as the 1974 record had been, it was as a duet with George Michael that “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” had its greatest success. The pair had performed the song at the Live Aid concert in 1985. Recorded live at a concert at Wembley Arena, London on 23 March 1991 when Elton John was a surprise guest of George Michael, the duet became a massive hit on both sides of the Atlantic.

It was released later that year and reached number one on the UK singles chart for two weeks in December 1991 and a single week on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1992. The duet also spent two weeks at number one on the Adult Contemporary chart.

I have always admired Elton John. From his early days when he collaborated with Bernie Taupin, to his progress with awesome piano playing, to his ballads, to his work in “The Lion King“, “Billy Elliot” and “Aida“. 

I admire him for his openly “coming out” and marrying his partner David and for starting a family. 

I had a chance to watch his concert last night. It was inspiring, captivating and simply awesome. He sang for almost 3 full hours. It was all “business” … hit after hit after hit! It was clear that his intention was to entertain his fans to his full ability. 

Incredible job ….. more to come, we hope from: 

~SIR ELTON JOHN~

One of the most successful musicians ever, Elton John has had a tremendous impact on music, popular culture and fashion. Wearing flashy costumes and oversized glasses, John hit the music scene in the seventies and hasn’t looked back. His songs are all over the radio, television and movies, his influence can be seen in nearly all artists and Elton tickets are a virtual lock to sell out.

Elton John was born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in London, England, on March 25, 1947. He has always had incredible talent in music, taking piano lessons at the age of seven and turning those lessons into a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music four years later. Over the next few years, John honed his skills as a pianist as well as a lyricist, and in 1967 he responded to an ad for Liberty Records.

It was then that he met lyricist Bernie Taupin, and the two struck up a partnership that launched John’s career.

Each of the first three albums that John released in the U.S., Elton John (1970),Tumbleweed Connection (1970) and Madman Across the Water (1971), all charted in the Top 10. Over the course of his career, John has produced a string of hits, including “Tiny Dancer,” “Benny and the Jets,” “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word,” and “Rocket Man.”

John has also contributed to film and theater. In 1994, he collaborated with Tim Rice to produce much of the soundtrack for the 1994 Disney classic Lion King and its musical counterpart. He also produced the music for Billy Elliot, Lestat, and Aida.

Now over forty years and 250 million albums sold later, Elton John can safely say he is a rock legend and will be remembered for years to come. John has won five Grammy Awards over his career, including two awards for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

~~Your Song~~

~~Uploaded on Jan 25, 2007~~

It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done

I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen
