ABBA and Adele top CD list

CD containing the likes of Mamma Mia is best-seller.
Great deals on musical instruments
Two music acts whose names begin with A have taken the first and second spot in a fresh list, reports the BPI.

The list looked at how well CDs had sold in the UK during the format's lifetime, with Gold by ABBA – a group well known for their music instruments playing – at number one.

The CD contains tracks such as Money, Money, Money, Mama Mia, Dancing Queen and Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie! (A Man After Midnight) – all very well-known examples of the pop song format.

According to the BPI, the CD version of the record – a round-up of greatest hits – has sold more than four million copies.

"Even 30 years after its launch, [the CD] still remains the leading album format in the British music market," said Geoff Taylor, chief executive of BPI. Yesterday saw CDs turn 30 years old.

Second in the list, put together by the Official Charts Company, was 21 by Adele, the woman who was recently revealed to be behind the new James Bond theme song.ADNFCR-2133-ID-801461466-ADNFCR Posted on 2 Oct 2012 14:01 to category : Band / Celebrity News
