Two Rooms: Celebrating the Songs of Elton John & Bernie Taupin is a 1991 tribute album consisting of interpretations of sixteen songs written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The title refers to a song on John’s album 21 at 33, “Two Rooms at the End of the World”, and to the duo’s unusual collaborative style; it is also the title of a 1991 film documenting their collaboration. The album gained an uneven reception, though some performances were singled out for praise, including Sinéad O’Connor’s interpretation of “Sacrifice” and Kate Bush’s reggae-inflected version of “Rocket Man”, which in 2007 won The Observer readers’ award for Greatest Cover of all time.
Oleta Adams’ version of “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”, peaked at #33 in the UK charts. Kate Bush’s “Rocket Man” was released as a single and peaked at #12 in the UK and #2 in Australia (where it beat the original version’s chart position by several places). Wilson Phillips’ cover of “Daniel”, while not released as a single, peaked at #7 in the US Adult Contemporary chart due to strong radio airplay.
