Elton John had played keyboards on several of the Hollies' tracks, including their hit song "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," and the English band had hoped to record this song themselves. We knew Reg because he was a staff writer with a music publisher we used. He was writing songs well before he became famous," recalled their guitarist/vocalist Tony Hicks to The Daily Mail June 15, 2013. I thought it would be a good one for the Hollies, and asked the publisher for permission to record it. He told me Elton had recorded. This error is apparent on the entire ELTON JOHN album. Audra from Columbus, Flbrings tears to my eyes. Stephanie from Dallas, TxMy husband and I named this "our song".
Elton John once said of this song, "I don't think I've written a love song as good since. Your Song" was first released by Three Dog Night on their album "It Ain't Easy" (1970). Elton John performed as an opening act for them at the time and allowed them to record it. They did not release it as a single, though, because they wanted John to have a go with it. When John Lennon heard this song for the first time he thought, "Great, that's the first new thing that's happened since we (The Beatles) happened
