CSPC: Elton John Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 3

Considering how strong several of these songs were, it is somewhat surprising to see only Bennie and the Jets topping 40 million on Spotify. Even Candle in the Wind fails to reach this mark, which shows well that the song isn’t as popular as suggested by its 1997 sales. We must note that various album tracks from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road are on 1 to 2 million Spotify streams, nothing impressive for a classic rock album, but definitely enough to explain why it remained the highest selling catalog studio album of the singer. It tops 200,000 equivalent album sales from streams.
