"From Denver to L.A." is a song sung by Elton John, appearing on the soundtrack of the 1970 movie, The Games. The song was released as a single in the U.S. in July 1970, just as Elton's career was starting to arise. He was, however, aware of this, and the single was quickly withdrawn. It is now an extremely rare collectors item. The B-side is also from the soundtrack, and not an Elton John recording.

Elton said of the song:

"Actually, "From Denver to L.A." was withdrawn, so if you have got a copy, it's worth a small fortune. It was a 25 quid session I did at Olympic Studios and I just sang the song, and it was for the Michael Winner movie "The Games". And that's it."
