The Official Top 40 Biggest Selling Vinyl Singles and Albums of the Millennium
16 April 2015
By Rob Copsey


Since the announcement of the UKís first Official Vinyl Charts earlier this week, we at OfficialCharts.com have been loading you up with all sorts of vinyl-related stats, including the best-selling of the year so far and the decadeís biggest vinyl singles and albums. Today, we reveal the Official Top 40 Biggest Selling Vinyl singles and albums of the Millennium so far.

Leading the way on the vinyl singles tally is Spillerís Groovejet (If This Ainít Love). The track, which kick-started the career of guest singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, also topped the Official Singles Chart upon its release in August 2000.

The second-biggest vinyl single of the millennium so far is Deleriumís Silence. The Canadian electronic groupís track - which features singer Sarah McLachlan - first charted in October 2000, where it peaked at Number 3.

Number 3 on the chart is 50 Centís signature hit from 2003 In Da Club, and Public Domainís rave anthem Operation Blade (Bass In The Place) is at 4. The track, which samples New Orderís Confusion, peaked at Number 5 on the Official Singles Chart in December 2000 and spent 20 weeks on the tally.

Rounding off the Top 5 is Sandstorm by Finnish DJ and producer Darude. The trance number peaked at Number 3 on the chart back in June 2000.

Most of the dance singles in the chart are from the era when record shops still stocked a healthy amount of 12" singles and the format still appealed to many dance music fans.
