ELTON JOHN – TINY DANCER
Story time … about a little song about Tony Danza and the sheets of Lennon. Well, not quite. I mean, there IS this. But anyway …
2017 saw the 50th anyversary of the collaboration between Elton John and his writing partner Bernie Taupin. In honour of that, a little video hosting platform by the name of YouTube (as well as other partners) created a competition called ‘Elton John: The Cut‘ to give new official music videos to three huge Elton John hits.
The songs in question: ‘Rocket Man‘, ‘Bennie and the Jets‘ and ‘Tiny Dancer‘.
This project resulted in a black-and-white dance number for ‘Bennie and the Jets‘, an emotional cartoon video for ‘Rocket Man‘ and, you guessed it, the very L.A. video for ‘Tiny Dancer‘ you can see in this post.
It’s a pretty cool video, going much deeper than it first appears to be. And, in my opinion, it’s the fourth best use of the song ‘Tiny Dancer‘ I can think of. The other three of course being 3) the use in ‘Friends‘ 2) that scene in the new movie ‘Rocketman‘ and 1) THAT scene in the not-so-new movie ‘Almost Famous‘.
