^RIAA has Elton's total at 14.5xP

https://www.riaa.com/gold-platinum/?tab ... ch_section

His cert. with Kiki Dee is not counted with his total. Only certs with "Elton John" are counted in the RIAA total. Annoying, I know.

Now what is his physical single total??

If they've done a complete job,
i think there's a part III for singles certifications in US.

Some GOLD at least for Crocodile, candle, GYBR (maybe PLAT), don't let the sun go down on me, circle of life and maybe 1 or 2 more.

On Instagram page Elton refers to 16,5k certifications

The best selling catalog singles in uk are
1. Your Song (GOLD)

Think Rocket and Step were very near to GOLD.
