1. Candle In The Wind (Diana Tribute) - Elton John
2. Something About The Way You Look Tonight - Elton John

Product Description

Candle in the Wind; is a song with music by Elton John and lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It was originally written and released in 1973, written in honour of Marilyn Monroe. In 1990, it rose to prominence again when John rededicated it to AIDS victim Ryan White, performing it in his honor at Farm Aid 4 and at his funeral. In 1997, Elton John did a remake of it, as a tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales. This version of the song was released as a single version, and peaked at number one in almost every country in the world. John sang ;Candle In The Wind 1997; in public, for the first and only time in history, at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in Westminster Abbey on 6 September 1997. John swore he would never play that version of the song again. John has repeatedly turned down requests to perform the song live and only plays the 1973 version at concerts. The song has also never been released on any of his albums except that one.

Format: Audio CD
The biggest selling single of all time but it sold more on public grief than any actual merit it possessed. Viewed from a distance of three and a half years `Candle In The Wind 97` sounds slightly tacky, with Bernie Taupin's lyrics deliberately waving an onion under the tearducts. However it is still a potent reminder of the time when one woman's death affected an entire nation. `Something About The Way You Look Tonight`, was double A sided with the charity recording and got a lot of deserved flak for putting Elton's latest single on a parity with Diana's death. The fact that this was an uninspired song promoting a weak album didn't help. Believe it or not the B side, `You Can Make History Young Again` is actually the best thing here.

this is not something i would play over and over again but i am glad i have a copy of it. For all the wrong reasons i think everyone remembers this Elton John version of candle in the wind.

Great songs but that's just my opinion! Delivered on time and in good condition. Due to amazon req a longer review I now have to say more......it plays music as you'd expect but could at a later date become a coaster or a mirror.

I came across this by accident looking for something else and I'm so very pleased I did.
It brought back so many memories and I'm so happy that at long last I purchased it.
Should have done a long long time ago.

This song was written by Elton John in memory of Britains greatest loss - the late Princess Diana.
What Princess Diana did was remarkable and i don't need to explain. Elton John has remade his tribute to Maralin Monroe and applied it to Diana.
This song will bring you to tears because it will bring back memories and point out what could have been.
The lyrics explain Diana perfectly and let you know just how special she really was.
I urge you to own this song (Candle in the wind 1997) because it will bring you to tears and remind you how fragile life is.
Remember i bucket is needed to catch those tears
Adios!
