I thought it would be a good place to keep a list of all the certifications the group have had over the years and I can also modify the post as albums/singles go up or achieve minimum certs in the future.

8 x Platinum (2,400,000):

Never Forget: The Ultimate Collection
Progress

7 x Platinum (2,100,000): The Circus

4 x Platinum (1,200,000): Everything Changes

3 x Platinum (900,000): Greatest Hits

2 x Platinum (600,000):

Take That & Party

Platinum (600,000):

Babe
Never Forget
How Deep Is Your Love
Patience

Sure

Top 20 UK singles yet to be certified silver: It Only Takes a Minute, I Found Heaven, A Million Love Songs, I'd Wait For Life, Up All Night, Said It All, Love Love and Giants.

As you would expect every single which went top 3 in the charts has at least made silver certification.

7 platinum singles and 2 double platinum is great for them.

Some of those album sales are astonishing and feel a world away comparing to sales of Wonderland.

Agreed, however like Never Forget finally reaching a Platinum status. I find there are other tracks that feel like that should be bigger especially from the first time around.

In my mind it feels like Magic, Fire and Changes should at least be Gold status not Silver. Not to mention the never ending wait for A Million Love Songs to only go Silver seems baffling to me.

Pray considering it was #1 for a month and is still well received today also feels like it should be a Platinum selling single.

It's good that Never Forget managed to get over to the barrier sales threshold.

Of the more recent singles I was sure Said It All would have gone Silver sooner rather than later and if Giants is continued to be used as background music than it could slowly get there over time.

Never Forget, i had always believed it was on much higher sales than it stands. I had thought it was on sales of around 900,000.

Relight My Fire, Pray, and A Million Love Songs are also songs that feel they were much bigger in sales terms than what they are.

Never forget is def the song by them that has sold far less than I thought. It's such a big song for them.

Do you have sales for Sure.

I am assuming it is their lowest selling number 1 and i would also believe many of there other hits from the first era that didnt make number 1 may have sold more.

It sold 215,000 copies in the 1994 year end chart and was the lowest selling number one of the year.
However, it was released in October so didn't have a full year worth of sales.

Love Ain't Here Anymore and Why Can't I Wake Up with You have sold only a fraction more than Sure in the UK.

Could It Be Magic sold over 100,000 copies more also.

As Sure rarely gets an outing on tour or i never hear it getting played anywhere i would assume Love Ain't Here Anymore, Why Can't I Wake Up and Could It Be Magic have stretched their sales leads further.

That said, Sure is one of their weakest singles overall and certainly their weakest track to reach number 1. Sure reflects that releasing on the right or wrong week can change things. Sure is part if their Number 1 catalogue but i would be certain that both fans and the general public would feel Rule The World was a number 1. With Sure, outside the fan-base i would doubt many would remember the song.

Love Aint Here Anymore is another single i don't have much love for and the weakest release from the album.

See for myself I love Love Ain't Here Anymore more than some of the chart toppers. It's definitely in my top 5 TT songs.

The only thing I like about Sure is it at least it showed another style to Take That who unlike other boybands took risks with changing their music styles and sounds. Just think of all the different genres they went through back then and also now. Most boybands especially in Take That's premiere billing position stuck to a winning sound and formula. Take That didn't they constantly changed even if it meant shedding some fans or picking up others.

I think as a rock fan primarily it's one of the reasons I also like Take That and their music.

Though you're right it certainly wasn't a natural style for them that time and was very American R'n'B and of it's time. Wake Up in terms of production still sounds fresh (the single version) and though I love Magic it does feel a little dated production wise now though the charm and charisma from Robbie still shines through (again the single version) on the recording.

I'm not a fan of sure at all but it did show them in a different style but they were always a cut above all the other bands like westlife and boyzone etc.

Have to agree on love ain't here anymore it's a great song and I remember been so disappointed when it only made number 4 after a string of number 1 singles.

Well, if it makes you feel better it was actually number 3 in the UK behind two giant songs Love is All Around and I Swear!
It was number four in Ireland however.

Love Aint Here Anymore would have been a number if it was released earlier. By the time it was released the album was a million seller. As a fifth single it done remarkably well, at that time they were just so popular that it was hit after hit.
