Elton John - Elton Has No Idea What Taupin's Songs Are About
ELTON JOHN still has no idea what he's singing about - he has learned not to ask songwriting partner BERNIE TAUPIN about his inspiration.
The rocker admits he did poke the lyricist for answers about the muse behind Your Song, but Taupin has never spoken about the ideas behind his words.
Elton says, "I always thought Your Song was written about one of his ex-girlfriends, and when I asked him that, he just said, 'No, it wasn't!'"
"He gets fairly defensive... I'd never ask Bernie what it means."
