Short Description:

Written in 1972, the song Rocket Man by Elton John and co-writer Bernie Taupin is timeless. The universe is a mysterious place, and over the decades, humans have been curious to know more about the unknown – a place outside our planet earth. Listening to this song makes me feel intrigued by how curiosity leads to so many discoveries every day. The song depicts the intense love between life in space and life on earth with family. It hits me the same way as I think about how much I want to explore all the possibilities out there after school and yet, I still love being in the comfort of my home with my family. Rocket Man is a song that makes me reflect on the limitlessness of one’s life every time I listen to it.
