According to the latest sales data, a range of classic and recent hits have also passed the one million sales mark in the last month. Among them are Elton and Kiki Dee's Don't Go Breaking My Heart, Whole Again by Atomic Kitten (2001), Use Somebody by Kings Of Leon (2008), and The A Team by Ed Sheeran (2011). Elton and Kiki's duet, by the way, is #131 when it comes to the United Kingdom's top-selling singles of all time.
 
Elton's double A-side, Something About The Way You Look Tonight/Candle In The Wind '97, remains the UK’s biggest selling single of all-time, racking up over 4.91 million sales since its release in 1997.
