Lyrics Bennie And The Jets Elton John

Bennie And The Jets


Hey, kids, shake it loose together
The spotlight’s hitting something
That’s been known to change the weather
We’ll kill the fatted calf tonight
So stick around
You’re gonna hear electric music
Solid walls of sound

Say, Candy and Ronnie. Have you seen them yet?
Ooh, but they’re so spaced out
Bennie and the Jets
Oh, but they’re weird and they’re wonderful
Oh, Bennie. She’s really keen
She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine
Bennie and the Jets

Hey, kids, plug into the faithless
Maybe they’re blinded
But Bennie makes them ageless
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
To find who’s right and who’s wrong

Oh, Candy and Ronnie. Have you seen them yet?
Ooh, but they’re so spaced out
Bennie and the Jets
Oh, but they’re weird and they’re wonderful
Oh, Bennie. She’s really keen
She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine
Bennie and the Jets

Oh, Candy and Ronnie. Have you seen them yet?
Ooh, but they’re so spaced out
Bennie and the Jets
Oh, but they’re weird and they’re wonderful
Oh, Bennie. She’s really keen
She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine
Bennie and the Jets

Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
Bennie, Bennie and the Jets

*****

«Bennie and the Jets» (also titled «Benny & the Jets«) is a song composed by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The song first appeared on the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album in 1973. «Bennie and the Jets» has been one of John’s most popular songs and was performed during his appearance at Live Aid. The track is spelled Benny on the sleeve of the single and in the track listing of the album, but Bennie on the album vinyl disc label.

The song tells of «Bennie and the Jets», a fictional band of whom the song’s narrator is a fan. In interviews, Taupin has said that the song’s lyrics are a satire on the music industry of the 1970s. The greed and glitz of the early 1970s music scene is portrayed by Taupin’s words:
We’ll kill the fatted calf tonight, so stick around,
you’re gonna hear electric music, solid walls of sound.
Taupin also goes on to describe the flashy wardrobe of «Bennie», the leader of the band:


She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine Ohh…

Produced by Gus Dudgeon, the song was recorded during the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road sessions in France at Château d’Hérouville’s Strawberry Studios, where John and Taupin had recorded their previous two albums, Honky Château and Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only the Piano Player.


After recording the song in the studio, John and the band worried that it was too plain and unoriginal. In the Eagle Vision documentary on the making of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, John recalled, «I fought tooth and nail against ‘Bennie’ coming out as a single.» According to guitarist Davey Johnstone, «‘Bennie and the Jets’ was one of the oddest songs we ever recorded. We just sat back and said, ‘This is really odd.'» While mixing the album, Dudgeon came up with the idea of creating a «live from Playhouse Theatre» sound for the track. He added reverb effects, applause and other audience sounds from John’s previous concerts and a loop from the Jimi Hendrix live album Isle of Wight, plus whistles, giving it the «live concert recording» feel that has since become a sort of trademark.


John rarely plays the studio version of the song, and often makes subtle or even drastic changes. Live, the piano solo in the middle of the song has been played in all sorts of variations, from very close to the original to wildly improvised and extended versions, such as the elaborate version during a Central Park concert in 1980 and another memorable take on it during the «Elton and his band» part of the show recorded for what would become Live in Australia in December 1986. (It can be seen on various Laserdisc releases of the show.) He has also been known to end the song in a wide range of styles, including classical, swing, boogie-woogie and even using the signature five-note phrase from John Williams’ score for Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
