Every song that made it to number 1,2 or 3 on the Billboard Charts is on the PCM 1997 Most Requested Song List. Granted, Candle In The Wind 1997 was the top song of the year, and it is now #85, near the bottom of our list.

Today, you will hear the original 1988 version much more often on the radio or public events, athough the 1997 version sold possibly more singles than any other song, all collecting dust in basements, attics and Princess Di memorial cabinets.
