Video Rating: 4 / 5
“Turn on the TV, shut out the lights, Roy Rogers is riding tonight” Herredjävlar – that´s what I call music!!!
Elton in the greatest stage of his career!
such a gay video….. jb for life post on my page if u agree
Good job on the video .. thanks! Took me back to a place and time which was all about home and innocence.
Compliments from Italy for the video… The song is perfect naturally…
One word WONDERFUL
This could possibly be one of the best songs written about someone famous.
This song affects me in ways I cannot describe. I invariably cry when I listen to it. It’s the magic of music
My dad loved this song R.I.P. mate….
i miss roy rogers love this song. ty for the great pictures of roy also
Welcome & thanks for the nice comment.
Have a nice day !
Great video Jokarilon! This song has really held up over the years. It is perfection!
Thank you for posting this.
Absolutely one of my favorites. So many emotions tied to this song from years ago….
Wonderful song! I’ve been an EJ fan for 40 years now, and this is still one of my favorites. I can empathize with the fellow who works, takes care of the wife and kids, and still enjoys some magical moments of escapism before he goes to bed. Elton’s music many times provides us with escape from mundanity. He and Bernie are the best.
@Terranova0 You, too..? Just watching ‘The Trail Of Robin Hood’, just last night, while the wife’s in bed..My wife turned me on to this song..And, Roy and Trigger are hot on the trail..
Peace, and, Happy Trails..
@jeanniebeaux Thank you so much, dear lady..You’ve made me feel 65 years young..I do like animals, in general..Good to hear from you..
I just watched this video again tonight, and I could listen to it everyday and never tire of it,simply beautiful!So you have your own Roy and Trigger,how cool,sure wish I had a couple of horses,most people say a dog is your best friend,but I disagree,I SAY IT’S A HORSE!!Great Video,I enjoy it very much.
An Elton John tune I can actually like.
Hey, Elton, I have a song I wrote about the wide open spaces. I never did anything with it. I sure would appreciate you you working Roy into the story.
Sheer genius! How can you get everything so perfect? Words, tune, sentiment. Everything perfect in one song. Never get tired of listening to this. Thanks for putting this up, Jokarilon
@jeanniebeaux I’m one of those kids, baby..It seemed as if every other kid had a Roy Rogers playset, except me!Well, ol’ Roy and Trigger were my big favorites..By the way, I finally got my little Roy and TRigger, saddle and all, after all these years! Not bad, at 65..
I love this song,always been a big fan of Cowboys,horses,rodeos and Westerns.I can’t believe I’ve never heard this song before,who wrote this song,was it Elton John?I love the video too,
The part where he mentions “lets go shoot a hole in the moon” refers to astronaut Alan Shephard’s (Apollo 14) first and only golf shot ever on the moon in 1972 when Bernie wrote this into his lyrics as something he would like to watch on the TV.
