    That fact that Oasis is even on that list is embarrassing Mr. UK.

    I honestly thought DSOTM would have been much higher on the list. I read the title and thought she hit #1 ever.

    I have never heard of this artist and doubt if I've ever listened to one of her songs. My interest in music ended in the 90's.

    Fuck that jazz

    WTSMG and Definatly Maybe are two amazing albums.

    I'm more surprised that the white album isn't higher.

    I think the big record with Dark Side of the Moon was that is was on the best selling list the longest

    I'm still shocked enough people buy full albums for this to be possible

    I had no idea Queen sold that many albums in England, Brian May obviously is very rich

    Queen was one of the biggest British bands ever. They ruled when they were still around.

    DSOTM's record is over here in the US. It was on the Billboard 200 for over 14 years. (1973-1988)

    Well, when all you gotta do is press a button to buy a song or album instaed of going to the Record Store, I am amazed it took this long.

    x2

    I could go the rest of my life without listening to a single song off any album on that list. With the exception of 2 or 3 queen songs and maybe Billie Jean.

    She's got talent and doesn't use auto-tune/voice repair bullshit. Does something different from the plethora vanilla singers in today's music scene. Good for her.

    Good point. I'm glad someone with actual talent is climbing this list. Not saying Queen/Floyd/Beatles/etc don't have talent, I mean at least the person who's breaking sales records now is someone with talent and not an autotune lip syncer.

    I think she's great. Not overly into her music, but when you record a video in your home of you singing the actual song that goes on the CD? AND she doesn't bow to the 'You're not a size 6 wtf?' bullshit? Yay.

    I applaud her for not turning into a coke fiend yet in a desperate attempt to lose weight...but she'd be so much prettier if she dropped 40lbs.

    Wasn't bad at all. I don't even pay attention to anyone who sounds like their music would sound like lady gaga and all the others. But that was fine.

    Feel the same way. Not into that type of music, but she is definitely talented.

    The fact that you can actually hear small wavers and cracks in her voice as she sings is refreshing. I think some of that was due to the threat damage she had to have surgically repaired, but still....

    She can belt it better without help than most singers can with autotune.

    Dunno. Maybe it's the apathy towards today's music scene where 'it has to be perfect! drag out the programs to stop that warble in his/her voice!' I dig the fact that she is comfortable in her own skin (i.e. a little extra padding) and has said point blank that she doesn't give a shit about those saying she's big. She's healthy for her shape, so fuck the world if they think different.

    She's as real as they come, and thank god for it. Fucking refreshing.

    And I'm not even a fan of her stuff. Just different is good.

    I used to like her until I realized she wasn't a hot, black woman...:icon_cool

    She has a great voice, but I am definitely not into that type of music.
