Let's see which position will reach this year. In Us Tiny Dancer AND Bennie and The Jets re-entered between 300/400 position

    The List omits The Carpenters. Like Elton they have also had 29 Weeks
    at No.1 in the UK Album Chart. (Unlike Elton, they did not have any UK
    No.1 Singles. They never got higher than No.2 in that Chart).

    'The Lion King' on track to become Broadway's first $1 billion blockbuster
    Thursday, October 17 2013

    Hakuna Matata indeed! Although Disney’s behemoth Broadway musical "The Lion King" has shown no signs of wavering since its debut in 1997, the smash hit is about to conquer a musical theater milestone, becoming the first Broadway musical to top $1 billion in cumulative grosses.

    EW has confirmed that the colorful crowd pleaser — based on Disney’s beloved 1994 animated feature — will hit 10 figures after the week of performances ending October 20, 2013. Coincidentally, the spectacular box office feat (the first of any Broadway show) comes almost exactly 16 years to the day since "The Lion King" roared onto Broadway with its first preview performance on October 15, 1997.

    The news that "The Lion King" is the first show to bank $1 billion on Broadway may come as a surprise to fans of Broadway’s longest-running blockbuster "The Phantom of the Opera," which has been playing the Majestic Theatre since opening in 1988 but hasn’t hit the billion-dollar mark just yet. Phantom has grossed around $5.6 billion worldwide, though, holding its own against Lion’s $5 billion international take.

    Another fun fact: In just a few weeks, "The Lion King" is on track to overtake "Les Misérables" as the fourth longest-running Broadway show in history. By then, there’ll be even more cause to celebrate — and then the bug juice can really start flowing

    Yes, this is the soundscan total.
    Soundtrack tracks just record or similiar shops, but that single sold more because was distributed everywhere, in shops that usually doesn't sell records- So it's 11x PLATINUM / 11 million.

    Just one physical single has sold 8 million copies since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking U.S. music sales in 1991: Elton John's "Candle In The Wind 1997/Something About The Way You Look Tonight," which has sold 8,839,000 physical copies since its release in 1997. CD singles account for two-thirds of that tally; cassette singles for one-third. (Physical singles were a meaningful configuration through about 2000.)

    "Candle In The Wind 1997" sold 8 million copies in just 15 weeks. That, of course, reflected the extraordinary circumstances that made that song a hit—the shocking, early death of one of the world's most famous people. The song sold 3,446,000 singles in its peak week (yes, week).

    DIVING BOARD enters Billboard Charts at n.4

    Elton John’s 31st studio album, The Diving Board, debuts at #4 (46842 copies / soundscan).
    It’s his 18th top 10 album. He's one of only 10 artists in chart history to have amassed 18 or more top 10 albums. The only other male artists to have done so are Frank Sinatra (39), Elvis Presley (27), Bob Dylan (20), Paul McCartney (18) and George Strait (18).
    The Diving Board is Elton's second top 10 album in a little less than three years. The Union, a collabo with Leon Russell, reached #3 in October 2010. This marks the first time that Elton has had two top 10 albums within a three-year period since his 1971-1976 heyday.

    MOST TOP 10 ALBUMS ON THE BILLBOARD 200

    Rolling Stones 36 (First Uk Group)
    Frank Sinatra 33
    Barbra Streisand 32 "Release Me"
    The Beatles 30
    Elvis Presley 27
    Madonna 20 "MDNA"
    Bob Dylan 20 "Tempest"
    Elton John 18 "The Diving Board" *new* / Paul McCartney 18 "Kisses on the Bottom" (Best Uk males singers)
    George Strait 18 "Love Is Everything"
    Bruce Springsteen 17 "Wrecking Ball"
    Neil Diamond 17 "Hot August Night"
    Rod Stewart 17 "Time"

    nb: The Lion King is not in the total, it's counted as "soundtrack" album
