Elton John made the Scissor Sisters superstars!


Formed in New York’s Gay nightclub scene in 2001, Scissor Sister embraced the LGBTQ scene like no one else and gained a clear direction from doing so.

Their first single to cause a stir was a Pink Floyd cover of Comfortably Numb, released in 2004. The Scissor Sisters Disco version raised eyebrows, especially in the U.K.

Their next release, Take Your Mama, may not have gained much chart success but it did well over time as it was being played on the radio, in clubs, and even picked up by cover bands.

The final single from their debut album, Mary, also did reasonably well. The collective effort of these three singles, and more importantly, with the debut album charting at #1 in Ireland and the U.K., Scissor Sisters became an established act.

Their next album entitled Ta-Dah, which has to be considered the best possible title for an LGBTQ band ever, had a collaboration with Elton John. The tune in question was I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ and it was to be the worldwide #1 the band craved to take the step from well-known to superstar.

Reaching the #1 or #2 spot in 16 countries, allowed the Scissor Sisters to tour stadiums, something they fully embraced. The album itself went #1 in Australia, Ireland, and the U.K.

Following the enormous success with Ta-Dah, the band has released more albums and singles, some have even charted high, but no tunes have entered the public consciousness like Take Your Mama and I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ did.
