Rocket Man interpretations

Various renditions of Elton John's "Rocket Man" as well as some some unrelated songs with the same title.
The William Shatner has been posted on here a long time ago.

An incredible songstress who puts her own style into this classic.

Captain Kirk at his "singing" peak. The drama. The cigarette on TV (how retro).

The Spotnicks - The Rocket Man (1962)
This is an original track that's a 60's Surf Instrumental track from a Swedish band who seems to be a cross between Devo, Kraftwerk and The Surfaris

even drag queens get into this song

Alternative Rock band, My Morning Jacket,

Hard Rock band, The Nixons,

Alvin and the Chipmunks
high-pitched rendition of Rocket Man

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
do a live punk version of Rocket Man

Pearls Before Swine (1970)
released about 2 years before Elton John's classic and inspired by the same Ray Bradbury book, The Illustrated Man, that inspired Bernie Taupin and Elton John for their track.
