Double throwback! 1974 original release, with a 1997 re-release for Princess Di ("Goodbye English Rose") (R.I.P.). Elton John is one of those legends that I honestly find myself forgetting about from time to time, so it's a pleasant reminder when he pops up.
Really, this is one of the saddest songs ever. A life cut short and never fully embracing anyone else or anything. Always being sad and alone. Fun fact though: Bernie Taupin was inspired by hearing someone use "candle in the wind" in a tribute to Janis Joplin.
Because songs define our moments.
