    UK Most Donwloaded Tracks (from 2004)
    To celebrate Sir Elton John’s BRITs Icon Award, we reveal his Top 40 most downloaded tracks!

    Tomorrow night (Friday 13 September) on ITV and ITV HD, 9pm, Sir Elton John will be honoured with the first ever BRITSs Icon Award. Dermot O'Leary hosts the glittering show at London's Palladium, including a special performance by Sir Elton and Rod Stewart, who presents him with the inaugural award.

    To whet your appetite, and celebrate Elton’s remarkable career, we’re exclusively counting down Elton’s Official Top 40 Most Downloaded Tracks!

    Elton has sold more than 250 million records worldwide and is also famously responsible for the UK’s biggest selling single of all time - Something About The Way You Look Tonight / Candle In The Wind 1997. BUT how have the British musical icon’s singles faired in the digital age?

    With sales totalling nearly 5 million copies, you’d expect Something About The Way You Look Tonight / Candle In The Wind 1997 to be Elton’s most downloaded single too, wouldn’t you? Well, since 2004, when legal digital music services launched in the UK and the Official Charts Company started collecting digital sales data, this double A-side is actually only Elton’s ninth most downloaded single!

    Elton’s biggest digital seller is the 2009 reworking of Tiny Dancer – retitled Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer) - by Ironik and Chipmunk. The original version of the track was featured on Elton’s 1971 album, Madman Across The Water, although now often recognised a bona fide Elton classic, was never actually released as a single in the UK the first time around. However the 2009 version peaked at Number 3 on the Official Singles Chart, and has sold 238,000 copies to date. The 1971 version of the track is also at Number 6 in our countdown, you may remember it prompting a mass tour bus sing-a-long (and rightly so!) in the coming of age rock ‘n’ roll movie Almost Famous (2000) featuring Kate Hudson.

    #ChartFact: Tiny Dancer can count a number of celebrity fans including legendary Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and boyband 5ive’s Abz Love.Watch Dave Grohl covering Tiny Dancer below:

    With a digital sales tally of 182,000 copies, at Number 2 on Elton John’s Official Top 40 Most Downloaded Tracks is Ghetto Gospel with Tupac Shakur. Released in the UK in 2005 (where it peaked at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart) the track was the second single to be released from Tupac’s posthumous 2004 album, Loyal To The Game. Ghetto Gospel was produced by Eminem, who added in samples from Elton’s 1971 track Indian Summer. Like Tiny Dancer, Indian Summer is also taken from Madman Across The Water, and was also not previously released as a single in the UK.

    #ChartFact: Indian Summer is unsurprisingly popular to the people of the UK! There are no less than three different tracks called Indian Summer that have charted on the Official Singles Chart.

    At Number 3 is Elton’s first ever Official Singles Chart hit – Your Song (180,000 digital sales). Originally released in 1971, Your Song initially peaked at Number 7. It has re-entered the Official Singles Chart Top 75 on two other occasions in 2002 thanks to its starring role in the film Moulin Rouge (where it peaked at Number 4), and again in 2010 (reaching 61).

    Your Song has also been covered by everyone from Donny Osmond to Andy Williams, Rod Stewart to Cissy Houston (mother of Whitney), Boyzone and perhaps most notably, gave Ellie Goulding her biggest UK hit to date.

    #ChartFact: With digital sales of 758,000, Ellie Goulding has sold even more downloads of her cover of Your Song than Elton has himself of the original, bringing this classic to a whole new generation of music fans.

    And finally, completing the Top 5 is Rocket Man (Elton’s second single to chart in the UK) which is at Number 4 with 101,000 digital sales, and Can You Feel The Love Tonight from the 1994 Disney masterpiece The Lion King (Number 5 with 98,000 digital sales).

    #ChartFact: Rocket Man is the Elton tune of choice for 2013’s hottest producer, Naughty Boy.

    From Billboard, about Tribute ALBUMS:
    "Here’s a quick history of multi-artist tribute albums on The Billboard 200. The first to appear on The Billboard 200 were A Tribute To Woody Guthrie—Part One and Part Two (April 1972). The first to crack the top 40 was Deadicated (a tribute to Grateful Dead, May 1991). The first to crack the top 20 was Two Rooms—Celebrating The Songs Of Elton John & Bernie Taupin (November 1991). The first to crack the top 10 was the aforementioned Common Thread: The Songs Of The Eagles (October 1993)".

    In Feb 2012 there was the last time on Billboard that sales of THE UNION were published officially. At that time it were 325k in physical sales alone and it had weekly physical shipments of approximately 500-1000copies - please note that at that time it already was one year and a half in the shops. Catalog sales slowed down afterwards, so you have to assume, that there were less than 500sales a week from then on.

    But you have to add download sales to these numbers (AMAZON, iTunes etc). I think in Feb 2012 THE UNION already exceeded the 400k mark incl. digital sales. Now you maybe have a few more sold units. Maybe 420-450k. But 384k is too less. Probably old numbers.

    Thank you, interesting. I don't know if this total is updated. I think The Union is more than 425k, because is a good catalog seller. Let's see When diving will be released if billboard gives a different total.

    Katy Perry Is The Biggest Seller With A New Album Still To Come In 2013
    by PAUL CASHMERE on AUGUST 3, 2013

    Based on the previous album sales of all of the artists yet to release in 2013, Katie’s last album sold more than the previous albums of Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Drake, The Lumineers and Luke Bryan.

    Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’ (2010) has sold 2.7m to date. That is more than Justin Timberlake ‘The 20/20 Experience’ (2013) with 2.1m sales, Drake ‘Take Care’ (2011) and Luke Bryan ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’ (2011) with 2m sales and The Lumineers ‘The Lumineers’ (2012) with 1.3m sales

    Katy Perry will release ‘Prism’ in October, Justin Timberlake has ‘The 20/20 Experience 2’ and Drake has ‘Nothing Was The Same’ in October and The Lumineers ‘Deluxe Edition’ and Luke Bryan’s ‘Crash My Party’ will be released in September.

    Other major acts with new albums on the way include Backstreet Boys ‘In A World Like This’ (last album sold 111,000), Ashanti ‘Braveheart’ (previous 295,000), Nine Inch Nails ‘Hestitation Marks’ (previous 113,000), Keith Urban ‘Fuse’ (previous 743,000), Sheryl Crow ‘Feels Like Home’ (previous 219,000), Jack Johnson ‘From Here To Now To You’ (previous 837,000), Elton John ‘Diving Board’ (384,000), Kings Of Leon ‘Mechanical Bull’ (728,000) and Sting ‘The Last Ship’ (previous 114,000).

    SO "The Union" has sold 384.000 copies in the USA

    Absurd in my opinion compare download sales with single/cd sales!
    (also, the cost of a vinyl or cd is higher).
    This is the chart;

    VINYL / CD:
    108, Elvis Presley
    91, James Brown
    74, Ray Charles
    73, Aretha Franklin
    71, the Beatles

    Elton John Extends Record For Most Adult Contemporary Hits

    http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/ ... orary-hits

    'Home Again,' the first single from his upcoming Capitol Records debut, pushes him further into the lead for the most AC entries in the chart's 52-year history

    Elton John pads his mark for the most appearances in the 52-year history of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, as "Home Again" soars in at No. 21. The song marks his 69th entry on the ranking.

    The start of "Home" marks John's highest on Adult Contemporary since "You Can Make History (Young Again)" launched at No. 11 in 1996. Until this week, John had last graced the list with "Electricity," which reached No. 17 in August 2009. The new entry ends his longest absence from the chart since he first appeared with the eventual No. 9-peaking "Your Song" the week of Dec. 26, 1970.

    "Home" previews John's 30th studio album, "The Diving Board," due Sept. 24. It's his first set to be released on Capitol Records. "[Bernie Taupin and I] wrote 11 songs … and recorded them in four days," John says of the collection. Mixing gospel, blues, jazz, brass band, pop and even a waltz, it's "everything I love about American music," adds John, who was forced to postpone upcoming touring plans after being felled by appendicitis last week.

    In addition to holding the record for the most Adult Contemporary chart visits, John 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, John was honored as the chart's all-time top performer.

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

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

    "I'm counting on a memory to get me out of here..."
