Rocket Man (I Think It's Going To Be A Long, Long Time)

Kate Bush’s take on Rocket Man has been my song for this past week. Go watch the music video for it too ;D

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here

alone

Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it’s cold as hell
And there’s no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I don’t understand
It’s just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man!

An amazing bluegrass cover of “Rocket Man”.

Decades after it’s initial release, Elton John’s Rocket Man now has a music video. Iranian filmmaker and refugee Majid Adin reimagines the song as a story of loneliness, hope, and Adventure.

It’s also very pretty. The Mars portions appear to be based on London, which is an interesting touch.
