In an effort to further promote Rocketman, the movie about Elton John, the filmmakers have released another video.
This one features actor Taron Egerton performing -- in the movie -- "Your Song," both during the writing process and in the studio.
Elton John talked about writing "Your Song" as seen in Rocketman. "'Your Song' is pretty much like how we wrote it, except my mum and gram (grandmother) weren't there. It was the first lyric I got from Bernie [Taupin] for the Elton John album that I just more or less played all the way through. In the film he starts it and then it all comes together very quickly and that's the way it kind of happened in real life. I knew when I finished writing that song that we'd written a great song. It was the perfect marriage of words and music."
"Your Song" was released in October 1970 and it was his first song to make the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number-eight.
