Incredible song, heard something once it was inspired by a Beatles song although that sounded weird to me. I literally live on Beatles since i was a child, but could never imagine it could be Sun King.... In the end, there could very well be true. Solar Prestige ... Is indeed a great song by the John-Taupin team for sure... This info sheds a whole new light on it. Thanks!!Fernando Gonzalez - Coconut Creek, Florida
Loved this song even though i have no clue what the heck its about. Again Elton and Bernie kick ass. - chezchez, bronx, nyChezchez - New York, Ny
I heard that this song was actually a "friendly" competition between Elton John and Bernie Taupin, in which Elton bet his buddy that he could make a song sound good musically, even if the lyrics were absolute gibberish.Tony - Red Deer, Ab
