Whispers

Look at me twice, with wildcat eyes

In Their Own Words

Elton John:

“And you know like some songs like Sacrifice, when I put the demo down to “Whispers”, they really sound…the old spine tingling  feeling.” – 1989

  • Was originally announced as the 2nd single (which ended up being Sacrifice).
  • One of the first songs completed on the album.
  • Originally demoed at Woodside prior to Puk Studios.
  • Drum pattern may have originally been based on a preset pattern on the LinnDrum. If you listen closely, the hi-hat from LinnDrum’s can be heard.
