I kept telling people it was only a matter of time Elton John mauled another ginger to death.

Too late, he was lured and assimilated in 2013

I just played it with Alexa. What a piece of rehashed trash. Are they sure it wasn't weird Al?

Exactly; this isn't really overtaking as much as telling his liege to bend the knee. Plus, FTFA: "The two singers recently announced they have teamed up for a Christmas song that will be released later this year."

If that doesn't scream out "bad Christmas music that'll be played into the ground" nothing does.

\gird yourselves, Mariah season is coming

"Elton John has scored his first No 1 single in 16 years, in the same week he underwent a successful hip replacement."

Between that and the pic this really cracks me up in a very good way.

I was telling someone about how huge Elton John was in the late 70s. I looked up his US chart history, and he had at least one song in the top 40 almost continuously from something like 1972 to 1990.

I genuinely love the song...
I'm a pretty big fan of remixes and reboots of old tunes though.

The song he did with Stevie Wonder is far better

I like his collaboration with Li'l Nas X better ("You don't look broke." makes me laugh.)

While Dua Lipa's participation definitely gave a huge boost, scoring hits in today's market (the song also just hit the top 40 in the U.S.) as a 70-plus singer is pretty remarkable.

Elton John was great in the Kingsman sequel. Pretty funny. He even sang that cool song about Wednesday night. "No, today's Wednesday." Pow.

Of all his outfits, one of my favorites is his sequined Yankees uniform. Classic.

Good for him for keeping on.

Is it really Elton John knocking Sheeran off the top spot when someone else did a remix of his songs?

Yes because nobody writes name of mixer before title of song
