Elton John artist popular songs

Elton John was a rock and pop performer and writer. Elton John had 14 number one songs. Of those, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me reached the top spot twice, first in 1974, then in 1992 as a live duet with George Michael. In addition, Elton John had the best record of chart consistency with hit songs in the top 20 every year from 1971 through 1999, 29 years straight. This can only be said by counting Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me for both 1991 and 1992. In any case, he was on the chart every one of those years.
