With the upcoming release of 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' on September 22, Elton will be adding to his already numerous contributions to cinema, musically and otherwise.
Along with their popcorn, fans have been able to enjoy hearing (and sometimes watching) Elton in films since as far back as 1970. That was the year he was asked to do a vocal session for the film The Games, since relegated to obscurity. The song, From Denver To L.A., was not written by Elton and his session player status at the time was such that he was credited on the soundtrack album and promotional single as “Elton Johns”.
Elton has, to date, released five original motion picture soundtracks:
Gnomeo & Juliet
The Road to El Dorado
The Lion King
He has also contributed original songs for other films, some of which subsequently appeared on his own releases:
★ Australia (2008) – The Drover’s Ballad
★ Mona Lisa Smile (2003) – The Heart Of Every Girl
★ Women Talking Dirty (1999) – Sofa Love
★ Four Weddings And A Funeral (1994) – But Not For Me, Chapel Of Love
★ Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) – Runaway Train
★ FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992) – Some Other World
★ Rocky V (1990) – The Measure of A Man
★ Summer Lovers (1982) – Take Me Down To The Ocean
★ Tommy (1975) – Pinball Wizard
★ The Games (1970) – From Denver To L.A.
Finally, Elton has appeared as himself, or a character, in:
★ All Things Must Pass – the Rise and Fall of Tower Records (2016)
★ The Country Bears (2002)
★ Spice World (1997)
★ Tommy (1975)
★ Born To Boogie (1972)
