Album: Good Morning To The Night (2012)
Charted: 48

Songfacts®:

  • This is a single from Good Morning To The Night, a collaboration album between Elton John and Pnau. The Australian dance duo were given access to the master tapes from John's back catalogue and encouraged to construct new compositions from them. John told The Daily Star how the collaboration came about: "I got in touch and told them they should leave Australia, which they did some time later," he explained. "Like all these things, it's about waiting for the right combination of circumstances. There have been several attempts to remix my music before, but I've never felt as excited about the finished product as I do about these tracks with Pnau."
  • This song was constructed around Elton's vocals from his 1975 track "Curtains".
