Rocket Man Introduction
But "Rocket Man" has stood up to the test of time. Its infectious melody remains just as catchy as ever, its lyrics just as sentimentally affecting. This is the song that turned Elton John into an international superstar, and it remains one of his most popular tunes today. We think it's gonna be a long, long time before this song ever fades away.
