50 best-selling tracks of the '90s

1. Elton John - 'Something About The Way You Look Tonight'/'Candle In The Wind 1997'. It wasn't new composition 'Something...' that did the business. 'Candle In The Wind' was hastily but sincerely rewritten for Princess Diana's funeral and performed there by an admirably together Elton. Within weeks it was the biggest selling single ever in both the UK and the US. Sold: 4,868,000
