A fun read as always. I love the mixture of:
- Modern classics like One Kiss and Halo getting their multi platinums
- Two of the best dance songs of last year going single platinum
- A random 2000 Number 19 hit going silver and a Number 6 hit going gold - it's interesting to see which old songs are still getting a good number of plays

Wowser at Jessie Ware's 'Alone' being certified silver. ohmy.gif

Such a beautiful song, and probably the only thing I bother with from that album these days.

What I’d be really interested to know is how many pre download era songs there are (particularly from 2000 to 2006) that have gone on to become certified despite not even making their year end Top 200, like Wifey by Next. Not many I’d have thought.

I was thinking about our convo about this from last year! I did think it would pass Silver within the next year or two but not as soon as it has.

Elton John vs Pnau - Good Morning to the Night (2012)
Bob Dylan - Shadows in the Night (2015)
PJ Harvey - The Hope Six Demolition Project (2016)
Barbra Streisand - Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway (2016)
Michael Ball - Coming Home to You (2019)
Blossoms - Foolish Loving Spaces (2020)
Green Day - Father of All... (2020)
Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbot - Manchester Calling (2020)
Liam Gallagher - MTV Unplugged (2020)
HAIM - Women in Music, Pt. III (2020)
Paul Weller - On Sunset (2020)
Ellie Goulding - Brightest Blue (2020)
Biffy Clyro - A Celebration of Endings (2020)
Nines - Crabs in a Bucket (2020)
Doves - The Universal Want (2020)
IDLES - Ulta Mono (2020)
Headie One - EDNA (2020)
The Vamps - Cherry Blossom (2020)
YUNGBLUD - weird! (2020)
Paul McCartney - McCartney III (2020)
Barry Gibb - Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers' Songbook, Vol. 1 (2021)
You Me At Six - SUCKAPUNCH (2021)
Bring Me the Horizon - POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR (2020)
Celeste - Not Your Muse (2021)

These albums sold 50k+ to the end of their respective years of release:

Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway (2016)
Coming Home to You (2019)
Foolish Living Spaces (2020)
A Celebration of Endings (2020)

And these have sold 50k+ as of last week:

EDNA (2020)
weird! (2020)

'The Hope Six Demolition Project' had the unfortunate title of lowest selling #1 album with 17k to the end of its Top 100 chart run but must have racked up a fair few more sales since then. After two weeks of release (the time they spent on the chart), 'Cherry Bomb' was on 15k and 'SUCKAPUNCH' was on 14k, so no doubt they are still below PJ Harvey and fight for the unfortunate title (You Me At Six will currently be lowest but I imagine will be a better trickle seller than The Vamps).

I thought the same laugh.gif doesn't feel two minutes ago that discussion never mind last year.

I have been streaming it lately so I like to think my plays paid a part. teresa.gif

A 20 year old Aphex Twin album finally crawling past silver status cheeseblock.png

Does he have any other certified albums? I'd assume 'Selected Ambient Works 85-92' probably has higher sales even though it's his only album that didn't make the top 100.

We also love to see 'National Anthem', 'Homemade Dynamite' and 'Brick By Boring Brick' getting certified!

'Selected Ambient Works Volume II' and 'Come to Daddy' have both been certified Silver too.

Good to see Love Song going platinum - a real late noughties gem. It must be trickling well as it wasn’t even silver at the end of 2008.
