the secrets of "I'm Still Standing", tube about the renaissance of the singer

It's a song that has a special place in Elton John's career. In 1982, when his lyricist Bernie Taupin writes I'm still standing, the British singer is at the bottom of the wave, despite dozens of hits. Alcohol, drugs, love disappointments: the title is a snub to all those who believed the artist on the edge of the abyss. "I always stand up after all this time, picking up the pieces of my life in you, in my mind", the lyrics are unequivocal.

"Bernie Taupin succeeds in synthesizing the feeling of Elton John to have survived, to have gone through hardships of which no one has any idea," analyzes the music journalist Bertrand Dicale. The clip shot in Cannes (Alpes-Maritimes) in 1982 is considered rather suggestive, while the singer has not yet confessed his homosexuality. The film Rocketman presented at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16th, recounts the ups and downs of this star life.
