  1. I never caught the whole Los Angeles vibe in the song, but then I was a young kid who from over 40 years ago till today has never been there! On the bucket list though. That explanation has made the new video make sense though

  2. I love these songs and wish a "Good Luck" to anyone who receives the honor for the videos. These have been some of the best songs of all time for me. They so much remind me of my childhood growing up with a large family of brothers and sisters. I especially relate to "Daniel" because I have a brother named Daniel who went into the military back in the mid seventies and one of my sisters continually played that song. Sir Elton John your music will always mean so much to me. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  3. It was 1973. I was 9 years old and bored. My babysitter/housesitter handed me two albums by a "new guy" I might like: "Madman Across The Water" from 1971 and "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player", his new album. I chose the one with the groovy denim record jacket, "Madman …", and have been hooked on Elton since the opening piano chords of what would become my song, "Tiny Dancer". More than 40 years later and I am Tiny Dancer! Can't wait to see the videos this contest produces. Still inspiring us after (almost) 50 years, keep on rockin', Elton and Bernie!

  4. Their songwriting partnership is amazing. The idea of letting people make a video for this song and the other two is going to be special. I really enjoy hearing them talk about what inspired them for this song.

  5. Piano intro still sends chills to the spine. Always brings back precious memories when I was 12 years old and holding that precious album in my little hands. For my birthday, my father (a professional songwriter) surprised me by taking me to see you perform in Berekely, California. Not a big venue, but you opened with Tiny Dancer. From that moment, I knew what I wanted to do. Though now I'm 55, it's only been recently that I've been told I look like Elton. Believe me , it's not by design. However, when I play 'Your Song' and see the response, I'll take the joy on people's faces any day. I've even been approached to do Tribute shows but I've said no. For no other reason than, 'that's not what Elton would do.' Having him hear my original songs I've written and recorded would be all a fan could ever wish for. Until then, I patiently wait for the next album. Bernie and Elton, together forever. Carry on. Carry on.
