"Nice list mate, Finally listened to Dark Side of the Moon a couple of weeks ago, just awesome"!
yes it is and considering that it was produced and recorded 38 years ago.it still and always will sound timeless.my 2 favorite songs from it are
"breathe" and "time"...the song, time, has what i think are the greatest, most profound lyrics ever written. engineer alan parsons was directly
responsible for some of the most notable sonic aspects of the album...
and it's also the 3rd best selling album ever made with 45 million copies sold so far...
heres the top selling albums ever...
Michael Jackson Thriller 1982 Pop / Rock / R&B 110 million
AC/DC Back in Black 1980 Hard rock / Heavy metal 49 million
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon 1973 Progressive rock 45 million
Whitney Houston / Various artists The Bodyguard 1992 Soundtrack 44 million
Meat Loaf Bat Out of Hell 1977 Rock 43 million
Eagles Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) 1976 Rock 42 million
Various artists Dirty Dancing 1987 Soundtrack 42 million
Backstreet Boys Millennium 1999 Pop 40 million
Bee Gees / Various artists Saturday Night Fever 1977 Soundtrack 40 million
Fleetwood Mac Rumours 1977 Rock 40 million
Shania Twain Come On Over 1997 Country / Pop 40 million
i don't consider a greates hits album,like the eagles above in 6th place to be fair.because it's a compilation of all big hits so of course it's going
to sell a lot...
but pink floyd 3rd place so far and acdc 2nd place so far are studio albums with all original songs...
look at "thriller" sales figure...so far!... 110,000,000 wow!
