I don’t know but someone posted this btl on the guardian’s review:

 

Lovely to hear the music from the old black and white Robinson Crusoe production that always seemed to be on TV during the school summer holidays in the 1970s.

 

That was on Orbital's Back To Mine album as a closer.

Elton John was amazing. I wonder how long he’s wanted to sing in the club style for? 

 

Cunk’s parts were funny but I literally couldn’t watch them with my eyes open. Cringe comedy makes me profoundly uncomfortable for some reason!

I still don’t get the Elton thing, why was he singing like that, as it a joke? I feel like I’ve been cooped up too long or something. 

 

At first I assumed that the clip was a lasting side-effect of the pneumonia that meant he cut a concert short in February this year. But I've just checked and he was back on that tour within a few days.

 

This is him performing the song at Rocketman's Cannes premiere last year - obviously his voice isn't anything like it was in his heyday, but it doesn't sound quite as much like the club style (as @Garibaldi put it!) as the One World concert clip:

I was doing a play a couple of years ago where I had to do a song, so as part of the warm-up I thought oh, I'll try the song in the club style - where I discovered it takes twice as much effort. Fuck me, it is exhausting! Full credit to both Reeves and John.

Yeah, totally Reeves & Mortimer club-stylee. The missus clocked it immediately. A surreal performance.
