“Your Song” is a ballad composed and performed by English musician Elton John with lyrics by his long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin. It appeared on John’s self-titled second album in 1970. The song was released in the United States in October 1970 as the B-side to “Take Me to the Pilot”. Both received airplay, but “Your Song” was preferred by disc jockeys and replaced “Take Me to the Pilot” as the A-side, eventually making the top ten on both the UK and US charts. A demo version was included on John’s 1990 box set album To Be Continued. The song has been covered by a number of artists, including Ellie Goulding, whose version reached number two in the UK in 2010. Read on...
