Tiny Dancer by Elton John Ft. Britney Spears Mp3 Download
English singer, pianist and composer Elton John has released recruit American singer and dancer Britney Spears for the remix of his 1971 single, “Tiny Dancer.”
“Tiny Dancer” was originally released on John’s 1971 album Madman Across the Water, and was later released as a single in 1972. It was ranked No. 47 on the 2021 list of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
With lyrics written by Bernie Taupin, the song was first featured as the opening track to John’s 1971 album, Madman Across the Water. The song’s lyrics were inspired by Taupin’s first visit to the US in 1970, and were intended to capture the spirit of California, where he found the women he met highly contrasted with those who he had known in his home country of England.
Bernice Taupin also stated in a 1973 interview in Rolling Stone that the song is about Maxine Feibelman, his wife at the time. In 2019, Feibelman said, “I knew [the song] was about me. I had been into ballet as a little girl and sewed patches on Elton’s jackets and jeans”, referring to the song’s description of a “seamstress for the band”.
The song features piano-based accompaniment during verses. The arrangement start features pedal steel guitar played by English guitarist BJ Cole, light percussion, Paul Buckmaster’s strings and a quiet choir. Back-up vocals are provided by Tony Burrows, among others.
Due to the song’s lengthy run time of 6:12 minutes, “Tiny Dancer” was initially a non-starter as a single in the US, reaching only No. 41 on the U.S. pop chart, and was not even released as a single in the UK. Some radio edits ended the song following the first chorus, because the first verse repeats. Some radio stations banned the song, due to the controversial opening lines of the second verse: “Jesus Freaks/ Out in the Streets”.
The song fared better in Canada, where John had much of his early commercial breakthrough success, peaking at #19. It was also a hit in Australia, peaking at #13. Eventually, the song slowly became one of John’s most popular songs even in the territories that initially failed to embrace it, and the full-length version is now a fixture on North American, UK and Australian adult contemporary and rock radio stations.
Tiny Dancer song also received a boost of popularity after having been prominently featured in the 2000 film Almost Famous. The song was also featured in the 1975 film Aloha, Bobby and Rose.
In 1971, Elton John performed the song on the first series of The Old Grey Whistle Test. The performance has been released as part of The Old Grey Whistle Test – Volumes 1–3 Box Set. In 2010, Rolling Stone ranked the song number 397 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
In the United States, Tiny Dancer was certified gold on 19 May 2005, platinum on 19 August 2011 and 3× platinum on 26 April 2018 by the Recording Industry Association of America. In the UK, “Tiny Dancer” was certified gold on 17 August 2018 by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) for sales of 400,000 copies.
On 2 August 2019, the song was certified platinum for sales of 600,000 and on 24 December 2021 it was certified 2× Platinum for sales of 1,200,000, despite never being released as an official single there.
