Many people think that Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” was about Princess Diana, but it was actually about Marilyn Monroe and released back in 1973. However, there’s good reason for that misconception: He performed an edited version of the song at Princess Diana’s funeral, with the now famous lyrics:

Goodbye England’s rose, from a country lost without your soul, who’ll miss the wings of your compassion more than you’ll ever know.
