This was a bit of an experiment prompted by my father, Davey who has worked with Elton for many years. He suggested I make a video for this particular song from the classic 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' album which, at the time of making, was celebrating it's 40th anniversary.
Made in 2013 and incorporating elements from the album's iconic artwork, I tried to create a household environment familiar to Elton and Bernie's generation. My mother's work as a film and TV set dresser definitely had a big influence on creating the right visual look here. The album itself was released 47 years ago this month!
