Revamp: The Songs of Elton John & Bernie Taupin - Various Artists User Reviews
Great songs with a fresh upbeat style! Not the same way Elton does it but Gaga and Miley are great! One star that others gave it is way harsh!
By Joel Bermudez
No one will ever top Elton’s classic renditions, but this is a refreshing take on these timeless classics. Love it! I can’t stop listening to it!
Don't Go Breaking My Heart 👌👍
Demi's Voice is unreal 🔥🔥🔥
Why all the negative reviews?
Personally I find this album really revitalizing. They’re covers, y’all. They aren’t meant to be the same as the originals. Elton John is amazing and beyond talented but this covers are great too. Each artist is extremely talented and they all have powerful voices. Try listening to these songs opinion free first before you come to a final judgement.
So bad it hurts
This is the best. It’s so crappy it’s great. Why would anyone do this??? Ha. I’m not even going to click on Coldplay...let me guess it’s a piano ballad version played over earnestly? Lol.
Love love love it!

If you are a true Elton fan, you would have a copy of Two Rooms released c. 1993 and that album was FULL of top acts showing their mad respect for Elton and Bernie. It’s a great album! Between the haunting version of Sinead O’Connor’s “Sacrifice” and the rocking version of The Who’s “Saturday Night’s (Alright for Fighting)”, no fan should be without that album. Jon Bob Jovi did a great job on “Levon”, “Burn Down the Mission” was perfect for Phil Collins and Kate Bush went all out for “Rocket Man” to make it here. This new album has taken it a step further into the future. I think all of these versions are spot on. No one tops the original (all hail Queen Elton!) but I always love to see how different “the kids” are going to take it. To me, Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus and Alessia are all kids probably born after Elton released “The One” album. Anyway, it’s a fresh take on his music. Don’t hate it bc it sounds different; love it because it sounds different. It shows that no matter how many kids are born, their lyrics and music will sustain time. My daughter, Mariah, is not yet two years old and she will know Elton John as Uncle Elton in our house. She will also have Uncle George and Uncle Freddie but will explain to her that they are in heaven. Music is music. If you love Elton’s music, you won’t be offended of this album. The only “artist” that could ruin his music is Yoko. And hearing Yoko singing “I’m Still Standing” would be a traumatic experience for my daughter and myself. Get this album, and get Two Rooms. You will be glad you did.
Go away, haters
These are REALLY GOOD, PEOPLE. You fail to understand that these are good covers. Maybe you should try doing a cover yourself, it won’t be that good
This won't interest or satisfy those who remember the true renditions by Sir Elton. Some songs are ok, others just bad. Perhaps some appeal to the younger crowd or those who enjoy these artists.
The amazing Lady Gaga sings this glorious tribute to Sir Elton John with a full orchestra, including lush strings and harp. “How wonderful life is while you’re in the world! Thank you Elton and Lady Gaga for one of the best moments in music in a very long time.
Food for thought
I’m only here for Logic, killed it as per usual, hearing the back tracking with the hip hop vibe really set the song off. Elton is a genius hiring relatable artist to make his music relevant again. I give him props. 🔥
