In his five-decade career, the Rocket Man, best known as Sir Elton John, has sold more than 300 million records, making him one of the most successful solo artists of all time. His career began in 1969, and he has since played more than 3,500 concerts in over 80 countries. He has had more than 50 Top 40 hits, including seven consecutive Number 1 US albums. One of his most loved songs, Candle in the Wind (the 1997 edition), sold over 33 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling single in the history of the UK and US singles charts in the process.
Picking a top 16 list from Elton John's career is a tall order. Nevertheless, much like his many public personas and musical identities, no matter what songs you prefer, there's always something new to find and love in every one. So, while these songs will take you back to your past, we hope that you enjoy this week's Music Box!
