"Don't Go Breaking My Heart" is a duet by Elton John and Kiki Dee. It was written by Elton John with Bernie Taupin under the pseudonyms "Ann Orson" and "Carte Blanche" (a pun on the expression "an horse and cart, blanche"), respectively, and intended as an affectionate pastiche of the Motown style, notably the various duets recorded by Marvin Gaye and singers such as Tammi Terrell and Kim Weston. It is not to be confused with the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song of the same title recorded in 1965 by Dionne Warwick for the album Here I Am.

dbo:abstract
  • Don’t Go Breaking My Heart (engl. für: „Brich mir nicht mein Herz“) ist ein Duett von Elton John und Kiki Dee aus dem Jahr 1976. Es wurde von Elton John und Bernie Taupin unter den Pseudonymen „Ann Orson“ und „Carte Blanche“ komponiert. Die Autorennennung für die Komposition, „Ann Orson and Carte Blanche“, ist ein englischer Wortwitz und typisch für Johns Humor. Bei einer nur leicht schludrigen Aussprache wird daraus „an horse and cart, blanche“. „Carte blanche“ steht im Englischen für „Blankovollmacht“, „Cart“ bedeutet auch „Karren“, „blanche“ hat im Französischen unter anderem die Bedeutung „leer“. Insofern wurde das Lied entweder von einem Pferd mit einem leeren Karren oder einem Pferd mit Blankovollmacht komponiert. (de)

  • Don't Go Breaking My Heart è un brano musicale cantato in duetto da Elton John e Kiki Dee. Il brano fu scritto da Elton John e Bernie Taupin, sotto gli pseudonimi di "Ann Orson" e "Carte Blanche", ed intesa come una affettuosa presa in giro dello stile dell'etichetta Motown, ed in particolar modo dei vari duetti registrati da Marvin Gaye. Come alcuni singoli registrati da Elton John negli anni settanta, la canzone non fu mai inclusa in alcun album, se non nei vari greatest hits pubblicati in seguito, come Elton John's Greatest Hits Volume II del 1977 o Elton John's Greatest Hits 1970-2002 del 2002. Don't Go Breaking My Heart fu il primo numero uno di Elton John nel Regno Unito, dove rimase per ben sei settimane nel 1976. Il singolo raggiunse anche la vetta della Billboard Hot 100 per quattro settimane, ed ottenne successo in quasi tutto il mondo. La B-side del singolo, "Snow Queen" fu scritta e dedicata alla superstar americana Cher (grande amica di Elton). Nel 1985, John e Dee eseguirono il brano davanti alla folla del Wembley Stadium durante la manifestazione Live Aid. (it)

John and Taupin originally intended to record the song with Dusty Springfield, but ultimately withdrew the offer; Dusty's partner Sue Cameron later said this was because she was too ill at the time.
