Rocketman

Sir Elton John, o cantor internacional preferido da minha mãe. Lembro-me de ficar pasmada com ela a ver o videoclip de Nikita.

As musicas de Elton John ficam na nossa cabeça por tempos infinitos e são intemporais. Em Rocketman podemos ver a forma como o cantor conseguiu dar a volta ao bullying e descriminação do qual foi vitima nos primeiros anos da sua vida. Elton é uma fonte de inspiração para a comunidade LGBT e para todos nos em geral, por se ter revelado, por ter mostrado o seu verdadeiro eu 🙂 Gostava que o Freddie tivesse tido a oportunidade de fazer o mesmo.

Extremamente talentoso mas muito tímido, o pianista prodígio Reginald Dwight muda seu nome para Elton John e torna-se uma estrela da música de renome internacional durante os anos 1970.

Deixo-vos com a minha musica do momento que não me tem sido da cabeça 🙂 O original é dos Pet Shop Boys mas eu adoro este cover 🙂

When I look back upon my life
it’s always with a sense of shame
I’ve always been the one to blame
For everything I long to do
no matter when or where or who
has one thing in common too

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
It’s a sin
Everything I’ve ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I’ve ever been
Everywhere I’m going to
It’s a sin

At school they taught me how to be
so pure in thought and word and deed
They didn’t quite succeed
For everything I long to do
no matter when or where or who
has one thing in common too

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
It’s a sin
Everything I’ve ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I’ve ever been
Everywhere I’m going to
It’s a sin

Father forgive me
I tried not to do it
Turned over a new leaf
then tore right through it
Whatever you taught me
I didn’t believe it
Father you fought me
‘cause I didn’t care
and I still don’t understand

So I look back upon my life
forever with a sense of shame
I’ve always been the one to blame
For everything I long to do
no matter when or where or who
has one thing in common too

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
It’s a sin
Everything I’ve ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I’ve ever been
Everywhere I’m going to I
It’s a sin

Ah e ja me esquecia deste dueto com a Dua Lipa que eu adoro com uma das suas musicas mais conhecidas: Cold Heart, originalmente chamada Sacrifice:) Eu adorava o videoclip 🙂

It’s a human sign
When things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers
And temptation’s strong
Cold, cold heart
Hardened by you (oh)
Some things lookin’ better, baby
Just passin’ through (no, no, no, no, no)
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no
And this is what I should have said
Well I thought it, but I kept it hid
Cold, cold heart
Hardened by you (oh)
Some things lookin’ better, baby
Just passin’ through (no, no, no, no, no)
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no (no, no, no, no, no)
And this is what I should have said
Well I thought it, but I kept it hid
Cold, cold heart (oh)
Hardened by you
Some things lookin’ better, baby (oh)
Just passin’ through (no no, no, no, no)
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no (no, no, no, no, no)
And this is what I should have said (and I think it’s gonna be a long, long time)
(‘Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find)
Well I thought it, but I kept it hid (I’m not the man they think I am at home)
(Oh no, no, no) (no, no, no, no, no)
Sugar (oh)
Sugar
Sugar (oh)
Sugar
(No, no, no, no, no)
