Outstanding.  Greatest Hits #29 and Greatest Hits II #44.  Both up roughly 10 places from last week for whatever reason.

WHOA.  ELO's All Over The World is #10?  !!!  Sweet.  How'd that happen?

Queen have a greatest hits out????  Shock.


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

The reason we have a load of rock albums in the album chart here in the UK, is because last Sunday was Fathers Day.
The likes of Queen's Greatest Hits and ELO, Meat Loaf, Led Zeppelin and Dire Straits are bought as gifts for your Dad this time of year and sell well and go up the chart. Obviously the two Queen albums have been around for a few months but have also been advertised on TV. The same goes for the ELO compilation - lots of TV advertising, and as we all know you can't have a successful album or product out unless it is promoted.
