In 1969 came one of his greatest all of time – "Your Song", from his second album, Elton John smashed the top 10 charts and carried on making a success from then on, moving to musical theatre, both in the West End and on Broadway, composing the music for The Lion King (film and musical), Aida and Billy Elliot the Musical.
