Elton John Discusses ‘Billy Elliot’ On ‘Today’

Sir sat down with the ‘Today’ show co-host Matt Lauer to talk about his musical score for the new Broadway show ‘Billy Elliot’. Asked about the difference between creating a pop song like ‘Bennie and the Jets’ versus a show tune, Elton responded, “It’s kind of easier in a way, because you know the story in the musical. The lyrics to the musical were written by the man who wrote the film script, Lee Hall, and Lee had never written a song in his life.” Watch the segment, aired Monday (October 20), below.
