  • In Elizabeth Rosenthal's biography His Song: The Musical Journey of Elton John, it is revealed that this song was inspired by "Sun King" from The Beatles Abbey Road album. Elton said: "I thought it would be great to write a song with English words that didn't mean a thing, but that sounded fantastic when put together..." >>

  • Fernando Gonzalez from Coconut Creek, FloridaIncredible 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!!
  • Chezchez from New York, NyLoved this song even though i have no clue what the heck its about. Again Elton and Bernie kick ass. - chezchez, bronx, ny
  • Tony from Red Deer, AbI 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.
