Something About the Way You Look Tonight

Something About the Way You Look Tonight

"Something About the Way You Look Tonight" is a song by Elton John, released as the first single from "The Big Picture". The single was released as a double A-side single with "Candle in the Wind 1997".

The video for the song featured actors and actresses from the UK Television programme "This Life", as well as supermodels Kate Moss and Sophie Dahl and is regarded as one of Elton John's best videos. John has publicly revealed (through his "warts and all" documentary "Tantrums and Tiaras") that he finds videos "fucking loathsome" and after the album "The Big Picture" refrained from appearing in his own videos unless they were cameo appearances.

ales and chart positions

In the UK only, the single sold over 4,864,600 copies (8x platinum), making the song the best-selling single ever in the history in the UK. It remained five weeks at the number one position. In the US, the song was considered a double-A-side with "Candle in the Wind 1997" and spent fourteen weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. On the US adult contemporary chart, however, "Something About the Way You Look Tonight" and "Candle in the Wind 1997" charted separately, and while the tribute to Princess Diana peaked at #5 on this chart, "Something..." spent ten weeks at #1 in late 1997 and early 1998.
