Elton John – Rocket Man

Rocket Man” (officially titled as Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going to Be a Long, Long Time)), is a song composed by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and originally performed by John.

In May 2017, an official music video for “Rocket Man” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival as a winner of Elton John: The Cut, a competition organized in partnership with AKQA, Pulse Films, and YouTube in honour of the fiftieth anniversary of his songwriting relationship with Bernie Taupin. The competition called upon independent filmmakers to submit treatments for music videos for one of three Elton John songs from the 1970’s, with each song falling within a specific concept category. “Rocket Man” was designated for the animation category, and was directed by Iranian refugee Majid Adin; the video was inspired by his own migration to England, portraying a character envisioning himself as an astronaut to draw parallels between the song’s lyrics and the experiences of a refugee.
