Love Is In The Air: Your Song
February 2, 2020
Much like my Jingle All The Way series that I did in December, I've decided to present to you Love Songs from the 1970's for the entire month of February. Yes, Valentines Day is a commercial holiday, but we will be celebrating love all month long here at Jingle Jangle Jungle. (Chocolates and Roses not needed)
You are more than welcome to join in the fun, all you need to do is include a link to your post in the comments so that everyone can visit. The more the merrier :)
Alright! Let’s get this party started! Fill up those waterbeds, break out the black lights and disco balls and let’s have some fun!
The second song for this month -
Your Song by Elton John
Wikipedia tells us about this song:
"Your Song" is a song composed and performed by English musician Elton John with lyrics by his longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin. It originally appeared on John's eponymous second studio album (1970). The song was recorded at Trident Studios in London in January 1970 and released in the United States in October 1970 as the B-side to "Take Me to the Pilot". Both songs received airplay, but "Your Song" was preferred by disc jockeys and replaced "Take Me to the Pilot" as the A-side, eventually making it to number eight on the Billboard chart. The song also peaked at number seven on the UK Singles Chart, as well as charting in the top 10 in several other countries.
"Your Song" was first released by American rock band Three Dog Night in March 1970 on their third studio album, It Ain't Easy. John was an opening act for the band at the time and allowed them to record it. They did not release it as a single as they wanted to let John, then an upcoming artist, have a go with it.
