For his hits like Lay Me Down and Not The Only One, Sam Smith is known for his vocal range and heartfelt lyrics.

A classic is a classic for a reason: They never get old. This is exactly the case for the music of Sir Elton John, which has spanned generations and generations. Even now, he is one of the highest regarded names in music and entertainment. And how could you not appreciate his style?
