With echoes of “The Bitch is Back,” “Sad Songs Say So Much,” and “I’m Still Standing,” Elton John has delivered a big hit with his new single, “I’m Gonna Love Me Again.”
It’s the song he will enter into the Oscar race from his movie, “Rocketman.” Actor Taron Egerton who plays Elton in the movie, sings it with him.
Tonight they’ll perform it at the after party for “Rocketman” on the beach at Cannes. It’s the hottest ticket in Europe.
Elton and his movie producers including David Furnish were very smart to make a new song for “Rocketman.” It’s the one thing that “Bohemian Rhapsody” was missing. This way, they’re almost certainly guaranteed a Best Song nomination. “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” is typically very catchy.
