With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“She’s Lois Lane, but when it’s bad it’s awful” January 3, 2011


So here we all are in a new year once again. It seems hard to believe that we are now 11 years into the current century and that I have now lived in seven different decades. But then as my Nan once said to me, old age is always 10 years older than you are. So I take this to mean that as long as it’s not my name in the Guinness Book Of Records as the oldest person on the planet then I will never be old, will I? Obviously I’m only saying all this because I turned 52 on January 1st and birthdays make you think of age, longevity, life and stuff don’t they?

Rihanna longed for a deeper bath

Anyway enough drivel about me let’s take a quick look at the best-selling UK albums and singles for 2010. Rihanna has performed amazingly well with one entry in the album top 5 and two in the singles. It was also good to see the X Factor single failing to make the top spot in the end of year sales chart.

I assume that the one in the front next to Gary is Robbie

Top UK albums of 2010

  1. Progress – Take That
  2. Crazy Love – Michael Buble
  3. The Fame – Lady Gaga
  4. Loud – Rihanna
  5. The Defamation of Strickland Banks – Plan B

Worldwide album sales have Lady Gaga at number one with ‘The Fame’, followed by Eminem with ‘Recovery’ in  the number 2 slot.

It looks like Matt is very much a thigh man

  2. When We Collide – Matt Cardle
  3. Just The Way You Are (Amazing) – Bruno Mars
