Elton John's "Rocket Man" movie is a blast. His new "Diamonds" CD of greatest hits is wonderful.

I love the "Rocket Man" movie so much, I saw it twice. Taron Egerton's performance as Elton John is truly a marvel. Egerton sang Elton’s songs and played Elton with vulnerability, pathos, skill and verve, owning the picture.

Stephen Colbert took Elton John through his greatest hits on Elton's new "Diamonds" CD:

Inspired by Stephen Colbert's delightful interview with Elton John, now 72, I bought Elton's "Diamonds" CD.

  1. Your Song
  2. Tiny Dancer
  3. Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to be a Long, Long Time)
  4. Crocodile Rock
  5. Daniel
  6. Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)
  7. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
  8. Candle in the Wind
  9. Bennie and the Jets
  10. Philadelphia Freedon
  11. Island Girl
  12. Don't Go Breaking My Heart (Elton John and Kiki Dee)
  13. Mama Can't By You Love

  15. I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues
  16. Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me (George Michael and Elton John)

Loved it. Great music...artfully woven into the story. And taking us through the arc of his life's emotional pain added great depth.

Great movie.

My favorite song of his is, "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues". He has some other good "non-hit" songs too.

Possibly the best Rock and Roll show I have ever attended.

He was so obviously having the time of his life.

He was so entertained with entertaining.

In the mid-1980s, I saw Elton John in concert at the Tacoma Dome, WA. Sold out.

Elton John was wonderful! When he sang "Rocket Man," he was lifted up to the ceiling. The crowd loved it.

What a showman!

Elton sang and played piano with passion, verve and heart.

He’s got great talent

I'm looking forward to seeing it soon. I really enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody and am a bigger fan of Elton than I was Queen. I hope that sometime before I die an equally good movie is made about David Bowie.

It's missing some other great songs, like Levon, Burn Down The Mission, Someone Saved My Life Tonight, and Empty Garden.

I've yet to see the movie. Someday.

I had such a crush on his voice when I was really little. I still do.

Loved the movie also,,have tickets for his farwell tourin Toronto in October

Cool. Good to know the movie is good. I'll watch it when it hits whichever
streaming service I'm subscribed to.
I'm still waiting on "Bohemian Rhapsody".

As far as the music goes, I already have ALL of that in my collection.
Including "Honky Cat".
