William Shatner Music Vid | Star Trek’s Captain Kirk “Singing” Elton John’s Rocket Man

29 sec read

Elton John’s Rocket Man is one of the best songs ever, evocative, tuneful and class. This cover version by William Shatner at the 1978 Sci-Fi awards show is none of the above. Instead it makes for a comedic and weirdly hypnotic video

From the way he draws the cigarette smoke in and says “high” right through to the drunken performance of the last verse it’s hilarious. You can’t beat a bit of Seventies cheese for entertainment, and this ticks all the boxes.

He made a great Starship captain in Star Trek, but unfortunately his singing or ‘interpretation’ skills leave a lot to be desired. Stick to the acting Bill, I’m sure you can manage to throw yourself around the Enterprise as if it’s been struck by a meteor for a few more years… just leave off the singing ok.
