Elton John just seriously upped the ante for future Carpool Karaoke guests
James Corden’s latest guest made it a crooning session for the ages.
Elton John sang some of his biggest hits for the Late Late Show host, and along the way, he discussed knowing he had something special with “Your Song”; why he dressed flamboyantly on-stage (before donning costumes to sing “Crocodile Rock”); and the younger artists who inspired him to make music today.
“I’m only looking forward,” he said. “I don’t look back…When you hear something by someone new that inspires you from the young, it makes you feel ‘I’m gonna do that, I want to do that.’ So I still have the energy of a 20-year-old, and I want to carry on. I just don’t see the point of setting up shop. Once you stop, you die.”
John also revealed that he has four copies of every CD he owns—one for each house—and that doesn’t carry a phone, something that baffled Corden. At least he has an iPad. Whew.
