I know that I have fallen down on my Useless Facts posts. I ran out of printed material in this house. I am trying to compile some more, but I spend so much time fact-checking that it is losing its appeal (yes, I have to fact-check the facts. most things listed as “interesting facts” are actually false).
In the meantime, here is a list of the highest selling albums worldwide. There are definitely some surprises on here, though #1 should be no surprise. It’s funny to me that The Bodyguard soundtrack is the best-selling album of the 90’s.
While we’re talking about nothing in particular, check out my band’s last.fm page. It lists tags, similar artists, even our own streaming radio station (featuring us and similar artists).
