Swedish pop stars ABBA have surpassed the Beatles to score Britain's second biggest selling album of all time.
"Gold: Greatest Hits" by ABBA, and the Fab Four's 1967 classic "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" have both sold 5.1 million copies in the U.K., but the "Dancing Queen" band have pulled ahead in the tight race by moving another 15,000 units of their 1992 collection.
Queen's 1981 "Greatest Hits" release still holds the top spot, according to new data released by the Official Charts Company. ABBA singer Bjorn Ulvaeus says, "It feels unreal outselling the greatest record ever."
Adele's "21" and "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" by Oasis round out the top five.
Sign of the times ...lots of people buying mediocre music from over two decades ago...
sounds like their a little starved for something new...I might be old but I'm glad to say I
lived my youth during the time's that music really did mean something.
