What was Elton John’s first number one song?

In 1976, this song was number one on the Billboard charts in Australia, France, the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, the US and Italy, proving one of the most successful first time number one songs in history.

It was the first song Elton had reach number one and it was sung as a duet with another well-known artist – it was also the first number one song for her as well.

It was catchy and we all drove around with the windows down singing it, and in 2013, the song reached one million sales in the UK. It was also believed to have one of the cheapest music video budgets ever.

Can you guess what song this is?
