Elton John dominated the singles charts with his pop song Candle In The Wind 1997, which would go on to be the biggest selling single of all time worldwide. Over on the album charts, Shania Twain and her album, Come On Over, was covering the top. Currently it is the 12th best-selling album of all time worldwide.
The album from 'The Bodyguard' is the best selling soundtrack from the movies with sales in the region of 17 million. Others at the top of the list are 'Saturday Night Fever', Dirty Dancing' and 'Purple Rain'. These are likely to remain the top selling soundtracks because of the current fractured state of the record industry.
