Friday Music Pick - Elton John
Elton John has released 3 new videos to accompany 3 of his classic hits; Tiny Dancer, Rocket Man and Bennie & The Jets. The videos came about when Elton launched a competition to celebrate 50 years of his creative partnership with Bernie Taupin. All 3 videos are very different and bring a new modern take on songs that we have been listening to for years.
Building on Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s Californian inspiration, Max Weiland filmed a video for “Tiny Dancer” that reflects on life in Los Angeles from a dozen different people, all unfolding behind the wheel of their cars.
In his own interpretation of Elton’s iconic hit, Iranian filmmaker and refugee Majid Adin reimagines “Rocket Man” to tell a whole new story of adventure, loneliness and hope.
Jack Whiteley and Laura Brownhill tell the formation story of “Bennie and the Jets” with their futuristic video of Elton’s hit song, which features breathtaking choreography and striking sci-fi fashion.
