Watch Taron Egerton Perform Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’

May 4, 2019

“It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron. I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie’s lyrics & my music – not just acting.” – Elton John on actor Taron Egerton singing his songs in the movie “Rocketman” (soundtrack is due out May 24th) – watch ‘Rocket Man’ below.

The soundtrack, Rocketman: Music From the Motion Picture, features re-interpreted Elton John classics including “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting,” “I Want Love,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Tiny Dancer” and “Your Song.”

Egerton said, “The beauty of having Elton involved with the film is we’ve been able to work with him to see how far we can take these classic songs.”

Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas-Howard and is in North American theatres on May 30th.

Are you a fan of them using Egerton’s voice or should they have used Elton John’s?
