The tiny dancer.

Who was Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’ ?

 

It’s believed Bernie Taupin, who wrote the lyrics, dedicated the song to his first wife, Maxine Feibleman, who was for a time ‘seamstress to the band.’ More generally it is believed to be an attempt to sum up the Californian spirit of the seventies, in particular a homage to the many seamstresses who worked on Rodeo Drive.

I prefer the first story. Far more magical.

‘Tiny Dancer’ is one of my favourite songs.
