Best selling?

#1 Post by Tentenlad »

I know this may have been discussed before, but I cannot find the info...

Does anyone know the (top ten) best selling singles by the boys worldwide / in the U.K
Are there any official sales figures? :D

There are no official sales figures available of their single sales. Neil has stated that he doesn’t know the total amount of singles sold himself.

Always On My Mind is their best selling single in the U.K
What Have I Done... has sold millions(Neil’s own words)
It’s A Sin has apparently sold 2.1 million according to Emi representative.

As far as I know, Always on my mind is (PROUDLY) their internationally best charting single. So it should be the best-selling one, lol:)

Always on my mind spent a lot of weeks like Number 1 in many countries, according to media traffic it was a long running song in the charts. More weeks than any other PSB's song. Neil said they really felt like they were rock starts at that time with everyone watching them. You could consider PSB were the best band of the world in 1987/1988. In Spain, Always on my mind was more than 2 months a Number 1. For two weeks, Always on my mind was Number 1 and Heart, the next single, Number 2. It not, Heart had been another Number 1 for PSB in Spain.

What have I done to deserve this?? was a big hit in USA, it increases the numbers.

It's a Sin was the song with more Number Ones around the world, I think.
