"Candle in the Wind 1997" is a song rewritten by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The song was rewritten to commemorate Diana, Princess of Wales who passed away after a fatal car crash, this song was performed at Lady Diana's funeral and was only sung one more time officially by Elton John a few months later so it could be sold. All proceeds from the album sales went towards charity and it became the second most sold single album with 33 million copies sold.
