TOPIC: I sold 40 million records
#165736
I sold 40 million records 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago Karma: 49
in the 60s and 70s - as a singer. Hits like Everyone's Gone To The Moon and Una Paloma Blanca and under pseudonyms like It Only Takes A Minute and Loop di Love - worldwide (Johnny Reggae was a smash in Europe); on a huge amount of compilation albums (a hit single sold 5 million on vinyl as a 45 but several times that as a track on the equivalents of Now That's What I Call JK). Many more, of course, as a Producer and Label Boss, if you add in Genesis, Bay City Rollers, Rocky Horror Show, 10cc and others. It was fun.

2264 people have read this but not a single soul considered it worthy of comment!

Actually, I didnt know about Johnny Reggae being a European hit, and I am a bit surprised because I think of it as a very "English" sort of song.

Yes it was huge in Germany, to my surprise, yet Chumbawamba's I Get Knocked Down, which I got signed by EMI Germany and would have thought could almost have been their theme song (and mine) was far less big a hit there than everywhere else! Go figure.

Different days, different plays. Great achievement. But things have changed, couldn't happen now.

Oddly enough Popbitch just carried a story regarding how many million more singles sold this decade compared to the 60s - I suggest the price changes and easy availability of singles now means people happily buy anything and probably don't even listen to much of it; very different to the cherished gems we used to care so much about. Just as human life is now so superficial; our appreciation of music has dissipated and now it is just another consumer product.
