The Best Sellers Revisited


Exactly one year ago today, I checked to see how many of the top 10 selling albums of all time I had in my collection.  At the time, I had three: Led Zeppelin IV, AC~DC's Back In Black and Taryn's Shania Twain's Come On Over.

If we revisit this today, things have changed.  Here's where we're at right now.

  1. The Eagles: Their Greatest Hits - Despite the fact the Eagles somewhat bore me, I now have this album.  I'm still surprised this mega-selling disc does not have "Hotel California" on it.  Over the past year I added that album as well.
  2. Michael Jackson: Thriller - The disc is mine.
  3. Pink Floyd: The Wall - I added a great deal of Pink Floyd over the past year, including this double album.
  4. Led Zeppelin: Untitled (IV) - I've had this one for quite some time.  Is there a high school student out there who doesn't own IV?
  5. Billy Joel: Greatest Hits, Volume 1 & 2 - I added a two CD collection from Billy Joel called The Essential Billy Joel.  I don't know if it's the same set, but it's got all the hits you'll find on the greatest hits.  I say it counts!
  6. AC~DC: Back In Black - Another high school staple, I've had this album since grade nine.
  7. Shania Twain: Come On Over - As I said a year ago, Taryn bought this one.  She's the fan, I'm just a casual observer.
  8. Fleetwood Mac: Rumours - I don't have it but I now have the Fleetwood Mac box set "The Chain" which is four CDs full of the good stuff.  A great deal of Rumours is represented, obviously.
  9. The Beatles: The Beatles (White Album) - I finally added this classic to my collection recently.  I'm still missing Rubber Soul though...
  10. Whitney Houston & Various Artists: The Bodyguard - I don't own it this one and I likely never will.  I only collect music I'm certain I may actually want to hear some day.
