Elton_John_-_Goodbye_Yellow_Brick_Road#2 – Elton John – “Candle in the Wind” – (1973)

This is one of Elton John’s finest songs. A wonderful tribute to Marilyn Monroe, “Candle in the Wind” came from one of Elton’s finest albums, as well. In 1997, he would re-lyric the song to honor Princess Diana after her death. That version would hit #1 and become the second-biggest selling single of all time. This one is no slouch, either.
