Elton John's lovely ballad "Your Song" has stood the test of time, garnering numerous covers since it was released on the singer's self-titled second album in 1970. But nothing quite compares to hearing the tune from the man himself, and this great mashup, which edits together a smooth rendition of the song as performed by John over more than 40 years, is a treat for fans (as is a surprising, funny moment that comes just before the 3:00 mark).
