DescriptionElton John "Candle In The Wind (1997)" RIAA Diamond+ Sales Award. With the sudden and tragic passing of Diana, perhaps the most public face of the collective grief felt worldwide was that of Sir Elton John, a close personal friend to the princess. His heartfelt tribute to her, "Candle In The Wind (Goodbye England's Rose" was performed at her funeral (the only time John has performed the song publicly), and a studio version was recorded for release as a single, produced by Sir George Martin.
"Candle In The Wind (1997)" became the biggest-selling single of all time (over 33 million copies worldwide), and holds the distinction of being the only Diamond (10 million copies sold) certified single in US. It was issued as a double A-side with "Something About The Way You Look Tonight", which John also dedicated to the memory of Diana, from his LP The Big Picture.
