Dedicated to princess Diane.....nothing more than good!
The world's crying, when Lady Diana dies.
▓ Zeer mooie plaat van "Elton John" ter nagedachtenis aan "Prinses Diana", september 1997 !!! Deze plaat stond samen met de andere mooie "A-kant": "Something About The Way You Look Tonight" in de Hollandse hitlijsten !!! Het is ongelooflijk dat het komende jaar, 2007, alweer 10 jaar geleden is !!! Van mij 6 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 14 wk / # 1) !!!
De 5sterren zijn voor 'Candle In The Wind', omdat hij het zo mooi zong op de begrafennis van Lady Di.
Meesterwerk van Elton John.

Heel mooi nummer van Elton John. Meer weet ik eigenlijk niet te zeggen...
An absolutely brilliant and beautiful version. The new lyrics simply convey what the world and in particular the people of the UK were feeling during the time of Diana's death. The simple production and the heartfelt vocals of John make this one of the best tributes to anybody. Deservedly the most successful song of 1997
Your a gumpy-bum 392414.
I can appreciate it for what's it's and even the original but that's what was happening in that moment of time and Diana's death effected millions. I still remember walking into the backyard and seeing the horror on my mum's face when news broke.
Mooi eerbetoon aan Prinses Diana
Given the circumstances of the song, it is very understandable why this song was very successful and there is no denying it. However, if this was just an ordinary song that was released normally, it certainly would not have deserved all the sales it received. That saying, it's till pretty good!
Original is better, but this is still good
love this version. this track will continue in the hearts of many for the coming decades.
Het origineel uit de begin jaren zeventig is vele malen beter. Di werd alleen maar een groot succes door het plotselinge overlijden van Lady Di.
Not as good as the original, but brilliant songwriting nonetheless!
ik heb gemengde gevoelens bij dit nummer. Enerzijds mooi gezongen, anderzijds toch wel weer commerciele uitbuiterij wegens het overlijden van Lady Di
I don't mind the track now, glad for all its success.Laatst gewijzigd: 10/03/2012 00:47
complete trash, the lyric ruined it.. english rose?? or whore?
amazing song with a tragic story behind it, 392 dont be so ignorant.
Not as good as the original, but a fitting tribute.
Good tribute song.
I prefer 'Something About The Way You Look Tonight' on the single. Laatst gewijzigd: 30/04/2015 18:50
Together with "Something About The Way You Look Tonight" peaked at #1 in Finland, September 1997. Sold 54 225 copies and was certified five times Platinum.
Honestly, this is a poor record. I understand the circumstances, but it's a poor record. The original version has a more natural flow to it, but this is too bare and difficult to listen to. It shows how really small the pop world is compared to the grand scale, because even if those who were buying Aqua & Spice Girls singles around the time would want nothing to do with this, it was of course destined to show up trumps.
I hold no particularly heightened disrespect or admiration for Diana or Norma Jean, but the original record is much more palatable, I really can't give this one any more than what I have.Laatst gewijzigd: 21/10/2014 20:51
I'd probably appreciate it more if I were older but it's still a nice song. I have no problem with it being the highest selling song of all time in Australia, it's much better than Party Rock Anthem.
Classic! Deserved to be the #1 Single of 1997 and
is one of the Best Singles of the entire 1990's.
Not something for me, but it gets a 3* due to it being a decent tribute.
I believe this is the most sold song in Australia of all-time as well.
De nummer één in de jaarlijst van 1997. Prima nummer ook.
een terechte nummer 1, ondanks het verhaal erachter, volle bak
