I was hoping they'd have actual Elton John vocals like they did for the Queen film, I'm not so keen on whoever's vocal it is in the trailer.
I'll still watch the film though, it looks great!
I wouldn't bet on the soundtrack spending (m)any weeks at #1 as the sales will be split between it and Elton John's 'Diamonds', there's no way it'll spend even half as long as TGS at #1.

I rather liked the reinterpretation of the songs in a non-chronological fashion - they suited the narrative, and the film is essentially a musical based on some events in Elton's life, inventive and the cast is superb, especially Taron Egerton. Elton's Manager/Partner/tosspot John Reid is beautifully played by Rob Stark. I mean Richard Madden, but the touching relationship is totally the lifelong friendship with Bernie Taupin, lyricist and decent egg. Some of the dance sequences are great. 7/10 at least...

Loved this!! Seen it tonight and throughly enjoyed it.

Random but does anyone have a link to a UK list of Eltonís biggest hits?

I know whatís #1. But I had a look at his discography and was quite shocked at where some songs peaked at.

Iíve been searching but just canít seen to find one whatís sales based.

MTV broadcast this last month:

1 - Elton John = Candle In The Wind 97 :: 4,900k
2 - Elton John & Kiki Dee = Don't Go Breaking My Heart :: 1,200k
3 - Elton John = Sacrifice / Healing Hands :: 850k
4 - Elton John = Rocket Man :: 750k
5 - Elton John = Your Song :: 660k
6 - 2Pac ft Elton John = Ghetto Gospel :: 630k
7 - Elton John = Step Into Christmas :: 600k
8 - Elton John = I'm Still Standing :: 580k
9 - Elton John = Tiny Dancer :: 480k
10 - Elton John = Candle In The Wind :: 450k

I did have a few issues with the list, namely 'Candle in the Wind 97' should be at 5m if its been rounded to the nearest 100k; 'Your Song' is just its OCC era sales (1994 onwards) and the George Michael duet is missing.
