    This week #1 in uk and top 10 in Us, Aloe Blacc with The single The Man, which sample The "you can tell everybody" Your Song line.

    Elton John
    The Greatest Hits 1970-2002

    Greatest Hits 1970-2002 sales estimations:

    The compilation from 2002 received nice certification results in Europe and was his last commercial album. In Europe it was certified double platinum shortly after itīs release for European sales of 2000k. In the following years it reached gold or platinum status in some EU countries. Since itīs IFPI certification for 2million untis in Europe more than a decade has been left. Sometimes it returned back to some album charts. Itīs the evidence for the fact that it has been a good catalog seller over all these years. Sales in Europe exceeded 3million for sure.

    Denmark: Platinum (30k) in 2002 note: it received Platinum in itīs 6th week in the charts in Dec 2002, and as of summer 2004 it has spend 59weeks in the album charts: so I think sales there exceed 50k by far.

    Austria: Gold (20k) in 2002 note: sales are surely much higher today

    Switzerland: Platinum (50k) in 2003 note: there where two certifications, one in 2002 for Gold and another in 2003 for Gold too; the second certification is definetely for platinum

    Norway: Platinum (50k) in 2003

    Germany: Gold (100k) in 2004

    Netherlands: there are no information about certifications, but it peaked # 14 with half a year in the charts; back then Gold needed 50k sales; so it maybe reached 30k there

    Sweden: same situation as in NL; it peaked # 12 and stood after all 19weeks in the charts; Rocket Man (2007) reached # 6 with 13 weeks on the tally and got Gold for 20k sales in 2007; in 2002 sales were double as high; I think it has sold enough for Gold (40k) though it never got any cert there

    Ireland/Belgium/Italy/Spain: charting in Top 10 or Top 20 and stood a only a few weeks or months in the charts, but a good catalog seller there as well; as borderwolf posted it returned to Belgium Charts last week for instance. In 2008 it shortly returned to Spanish Charts.

    UK: 5xPlatinum (1500k) in 2014

    France: Gold (100k) in 2004 note: last week it returned to French Charts as borderwolf posted (with sales >1000). The exact sales are 157000.

    The British website Officialcharts revealed George Michaels Top 20 downloaded Tracks in UK yesterday.

    http://www.officialcharts.com/chart-...revealed-2861/

    DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON ME (FT ELTON JOHN) is # 3 on the list, just behind Careless Whisper (1984) and Faith (1987).

    In Sep 2013 they revealed Eltonīs Top 40 tracks where the duet was # 16. So Eltonīs digital sales outnumber George Michaelīs sales by far. There were no exact numbers for the duet but it seem likely that it sold some 50k downloads in UK.

    Elton extends his record for the most appearances in the nearly 53-year history of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, as "Can't Stay Alone Tonight" enters at No. 27. The song marks his 70th entry on the ranking.

    The song is the second single from Elton's 30th studio album (and first on Capitol Records), "The Diving Board." Lead track "Home Again" reached No. 14 in September 2013. "[Bernie Taupin and I] wrote 11 songs and recorded them in four days," Elton told Billboard last year of the set. Mixing gospel, blues, jazz, brass band and pop the album is "everything I love about American music." The album has sold 142,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    Here's an updated look at the artists with the most entries in the Adult Contemporary chart's archives:

    70, Elton John
    64, Barbra Streisand
    58, Neil Diamond
    53, Elvis Presley
    50, Barry Manilow
    50, Johnny Mathis
    48, Frank Sinatra
    47, Kenny Rogers
    46, Herb Alpert/Tijuana Brass
    45, Dionne Warwick

    Elton first charted on AC with the No. 9-peaking classic "Your Song," which bowed on the December 26, 1970, ranking. Aloe Blacc has interpolated the ballad in his single "The Man," which last week hit the Billboard Hot 100's top 10, granting Elton and Bernie their first top 10 as writers since 1998.

    OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder also confirmed to Billboard earlier in March 2014 that he's finished a dance song with Elton's vocals, produced and co-written with Swedish House Mafia's Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell for an as-yet-undetermined project.

    Along with holding the record for the most AC visits, Elton also boasts the most No. 1s (15, a mark he shares with the Carpenters) and top 10s (39). When Billboard celebrated the survey's 50th anniversary in 2011, Elton was honored as the chart's all-time top performer.

    Some nice statistics:

    Returning to the Catalog chart for the first time since 2011 is Elton John's "Greatest Hits", coming straight in at #9 for its first week in the top 10 since March 7, 1998. Elton John has eight Catalog charting albums, and all but one of them are compilations of some kind.
    Returning for the first time since 2012 is Van Halen's self-titled debut album. Four other albums spend their first week on the chart in 2014 after also charting in 2013, including The Temptations' "20th Century Masters" collection from the 1960's, which spent 17 weeks on the Catalog chart in 2013.

    Catalog Chart History - Elton John:
    1. Greatest Hits (411 weeks, Peak #1 (1991-02, 2004, 2011, 2014)) (BB200: 104 wks, Peak #1 (1974))
