Home Music Elton John “Rocketman” BioPic Soundtrack Avoids “Bohemian Rhapsody” Trap, Include New...

The tracklisting for Elton John’s “Rocketman” is out on iTunes, and it shows the filmmakers have avoided the “Bohemian Rhapsody” trap of not having a new song for the Oscars. Sir Elton and star Taron Egerton sing “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” at the end of the movie, maybe over the credits. This will qualify them for a Best Song at the Academy Awards. Smart move.

The “Rocketman” tracklist shows that the movie sticks close to the early mid part of Elton’s career. leaving out a ton of songs which may turn up in the movie briefly and not as full bits. But it also shows that it’s not necessarily chronological, but more of a “fantasy” of musical numbers. Expect the soundtrack to hit number 1 when it’s released on May 24th.

The movie opens in Cannes on May 16th, and around the world on May 31st.
