Elton John Shares Six Rare Songs In Celebration Of 74th Birthday

To celebrate his 74th birthday on Thursday, Elton John shared six rare songs from his 2020 box set Elton: Jewel Box on streaming services.

The songs include “Scarecrow,” the first song he wrote with Bernie Taupin in 1967, “Holiday Inn,” “Keep It a Mystery,” “Smokestack Children,” “Two of a Kind,” and “Conquer the Sun.”

The six deep cuts will be added to the digital version of Elton: Jewel Box, which contains more than 100 rare songs spanning 1965 to 2019.

A series of events are detailed by Daryl Easlea in the book that comes with the box set’s CD and Rarities & B-Sides vinyl editions.

“Scarecrow’ will always have a very special place in my heart, and I know that Bernie feels the same way too,” John said in a statement.
“It’s the song that started it all.”

“This last year in lockdown has given us all time to look back and reflect — finding this song again when I put together the Jewel Box and thinking of everything that has happened in our careers and friendships that has sprouted from this one point is just remarkable,” he added.
