Wasn't too sure if this was the right place to post it, but it can always be moved if not!

Here's a list I compiled of various girl group singles over on Haven forum, thought I'd post it on here in case there's interest. The list comprises mostly estimations, but also some official sales figures that were provided by RyRy smile.gif

Enjoy, and I'm always happy to receive any corrections and help with the list biggrin.gif

Thank you wink.gif

I remember there was some confusion surrounding Pure Shores, recent shows aired on music channels had its figure at 720,000 (seems odd to me that it'd have sold that much since 2007 but I suppose you never know what sells in the background).

what's interesting are the Bananarama figures... it just shows how single sales are plummeting when their smaller hit singles, some even outside the top 40, sell more than their bigger hits more recently.....

I'm very pleased that Mis-Teeq's 'All I Want' actually outsold the overrated 'Scandalous', a far superior song I feel.

I wish I had more Eternal sales figures to show but unfortunately these were the only estimates I could find! Their debut album was the first girl group album to sell over a million copies apparently!

Awww I love Eternal! The debut album was massive. Pity it didn't get to No.1. And I remember The Verve kept their Greatest Hits off No.1. Surely their 'Before The Rain' album sold a lot more than 250,000. It had their biggest selling single! And I remember it peaked at No.3 on release and came back into the Top10 again a few months after that.
