Turntable Tuesday Video: ‘Candle In The Wind’ By Elton John

“Candle In The Wind” has been a hit twice for Elton John, but it was the second go around that was bigger than the first.

It went to #11 as a single in the UK, but was never officially released as a single in the US off of the “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” album.

24 years later he re-wrote some of the lyrics after the death of Princess Diana, which went to #1 all over the world.
