Something About the Way You Look Tonight is a song by Elton John, released in 1997 as the first single from his 26th studio album The Big Picture.
The single was released as a double A-side single with "Candle in the Wind 1997", which was dedicated to the memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, who died that year, with proceeds from the sale of the single going towards Diana's charities.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America, with certified sales, this double A-side is "the best-selling single of all time.". The Guinness World Records 2009 states that the song is "the biggest-selling single since UK and US singles charts began in the 1950s, having accumulated worldwide sales of 33 million copies".
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 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.
