Sir Elton John has come to reveal that Kate Bush’s song ‘Don’t Give Up’ helped him kick his addiction to drugs.
The song saved his life but he never got the chance to thank Bush. This 1986 duet with Peter Gabriel, had an impact on his on life and Elton said: ‘So she [Bush] played a big part in my rebirth. That record helped me so much. I never told her that but it did.’
Bush’s contribution comes in the chorus when she sings: ‘Rest your head. You worry too much. It’s going to be all right. When times get rough you can fall back on us. Don’t give up.’
Sir Elton John makes the confessions in a new BBC documentary ‘The Kate Bush Story’ which will start airing on August 22, 2014.
