"Believe" is a 1994 song recorded by Elton John. It was the first single from his album Made in England and was released on 20 February 1995. It reached #1 in Canada. In the US, "Believe" was Elton John's fifteenth number one on the Adult Contemporary chart and also went to number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] It gave him his third straight top twenty single in the US, with his two hit singles from Disney's The Lion King preceding it. In Europe, it was a top twenty hit in Switzerland, UK, France and Belgium (Wallonia) and achieved moderate success in several other countries. The songs which feature as B-side were recorded at the Greek Theatre, in Los Angeles.
