        I know at least 3 other Queen songs have BMI awards but does anybody know for how many plays?

        The songs in question are Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Under Pressure

        • Paul Grein in Chart Watch, October 5th, 2011:
          What recording by an artist who has passed away has sold the most digital copies? Some good guesses would be Michael Jackson's "Thriller," which has sold 2,796,000 digital copies, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" (written and sung by the late Freddie Mercury), which has sold 2,609,000 copies, and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" (co-written and sung by the late Ronnie Van Zant), which has sold 2,498,000 copies. As I said, they're all very good guesses, but they're all wrong. The best-selling digital hit by an artist who is no longer with us is Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"/"What A Wonderful World," which this week tops the 3 million mark in digital sales.

          • It's odd that in the Digital Tracks Catalog
            Week Ending September 4, 2011, Bohemian Rhapsody was indicated with the figure 2257431 as this link explains:

            http://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.p ... 3&start=25

            While Paul Grein nowadays indicates 2609000 copies for the song. There is a huge difference. In October 2010, on Paul Grein's blog, the figure for Bohemian Rhapsody was about 2171000 copies. That means that in circa one year it has sold 438000 digital copies.

            • As far as I know figure reported on Digital Tracks Catalog (Week Ending September 4, 2011) is figure of original "Bohemian Rhapsody" version but there are also 3 different live versions (one on "On Fire Live At the Bowl", another one on "Queen Rock Montreal", and the last one on "Live At Wembley Stadium"). Cumulative figure which combines all different versions of "Bohemian Rhapsody" is 2,609,000.

              BTW, according to Paul Grein in Chart Watch:
              Bohemian Rhapsody:
              1,348,000 (August 8th, 2008)
              1,991,000 (February 21st, 2010)
              2,161,000 (September 24th, 2010)
              2,233,000 (December 1st, 2010)
              2,609,000 (October 5th, 2011)

                Thanks for your clarification. So I think that also We Will Rock You, which it was into the chart that day, has surely exceeded 2,000,000 copies with the live versions.

                • "We Will Rock You" passed 2 million mark last year (week ending November 7th, 2010).

                    Hello Lee,

                    Thank you for this. It is very interesting to see that "Live Killers" and "A Kind Of Magic" were certified gold (for shipments of 50,000 copies in Canada) during the years they were released. If I'm not seeing it incorrectly, the gold award for "A Kind Of Magic" was applied by Capitol, which means that it was most likely awarded in 1986 (definitely before 1990).

                    As for "The Game", not sure what happened. But one thing is sure: it sold far more than just 50,000 units in Canada. Although charts were far from being amongst the most accurate back then, it did incredibly well. Here are its weekly chart positions between 1980 and early 1981, while charting inside the Top 10:

                    The Game
                    30.08.1980: 9
                    06.09.1980: 5
                    13.09.1980: 5
                    20.09.1980: 5
                    27.09.1980: 4
                    04.10.1980: 4
                    11.10.1980: 1
                    18.10.1980: 1
                    25.10.1980: 1
                    01.11.1980: 1
                    08.11.1980: 1
                    15.11.1980: 1
                    22.11.1980: 1
                    29.11.1980: 1
                    06.12.1980: 1
                    13.12.1980: 1
                    20.12.1980: 4
                    27.12.1980: 4
                    03.01.1980: 4
                    10.01.1980: 4
                    17.01.1980: 4
                    24.01.1980: 5
                    31.01.1980: 5
                    07.02.1980: 10
                    14.02.1980: 10

                    As it can be noticed, it spent a total of 10 weeks at the top spot (including several weeks between November and early December) and 26 weeks in the Top 10. It was still in the Top 10 during the Christmas month and continued to do well through early 1981.

                    "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "Another One Bites The Dust" were number one singles in Canada. The latter was the top selling single of the year.

                    This is what was written on an article from a magazine called RAW, during 1991:

                    "The rise in popularity of the synthesiser impresses the group and they feature in the recording of their new album 'The Game'. The recoding completed, they head out on the road in North America to support the new release. It's a runaway success, going Platinum a mere seven times in Canada alone". (RAW magazine, 1991)

                    It states that "The Game" went platinum seven times over in Canada (700,000 copies).

                    No idea whether this is realistic or not, but in any case, I'm sure the album is closer to 700,000 copies than 50,000.

                    Sadly, Queen's back catalogue was never fully updated by their record company. In 2005, they claimed that their albums aren't really up to date, but they also said that they weren't going to do anything about it unless there was a specific reason.

                    • In the UK this weeks X Factor theme is Queen vs Lady GaGa. It will be interesting to see if this has the same sort of sales spike for Queen as the last time they featured on the show, lets hope so!!

                        Any correction or idea is welcome.

                        Some explanations are needed in certain cases:

                        These figures should be interpreted as gross shipments totals.

                        Most of the missing codes are obviously 1,000 copies, but some are higher.

                        In the particular case of "Collection", the pressings AC, AD and AE are all likely to be 10,000 copies each, there is no way they were 1,000. The pattern is clear. In the same way, AI will have been 5,000.

                        Also, AU1000 was distributed in September 2008; a few months after that, Brian May and Roger Taylor visited Brazil (for two concerts there) and "Collection II" was released (plus, Christmas was approaching). Based on that, I would say that AY and AZ are both likely to have been 5,000 to 10,000 each.

                        About "Collection II", AB (its second code) will arguably have been just as big as AC. It was probably AB15,000 but I could never find it. Total sales are possibly 71,000 copies considering this.

                        Virtually all their studio albums and live albums have at least one big code, with "A Night At The Opera" being the biggest (AH9000) and "Flash Gordon" the smallest (AC6000). Very predictable. "Live Magic" also has a big code (AG8000). I believe there are two big codes missing for "Live Killers" (probably as high as 8,000) and for "Live At Wembley '86" (probably as high as 9,000). This obviously suggests shipments of 18,000 for the former and 21,500 for the latter.

                        Compared to the last update (posted at some point of 2009), I decided to lower the sales of "Greatest Hits" and "Greatest Hits II", while trying to find some of its missing codes.

                        I think those two albums may also have missing codes, which we haven't been able to find yet. The last ones for "Greatest Hits" (AQ2000) and "Greatest Hits II" (AO1000) were found in February 2007, more than four years ago.

                        Shortly after that, EMI released "Collection" and eventually "Collection II", and I don't know if many further copies were pressed of their previous compilations due to that aspect. I suggest a total ranging from 25,000 to 30,000 each; but it could be more if those compilations were never deleted and there are big missing codes.

                        There may be a high code for "Greatest Hits III" too. No idea.

                        "Absolute Greatest" was released in Brazil, but I don't have a total for it. Initial sales were probably 5,000 copies. I doubt it sold far more.

                        Their new, remastered albums were released; each studio album has two separate releases, with different codes attached to them.

                        The first batch looks to have achieved 3,000 copies each ("A Night At The Opera" probably 4,000), with 1,500 coming from the regular CD and a further 1,500 coming from the double CD (with the extra EP).

                        Second batch apparently had 2,000 copies per title, as probably did the third batch.

                        No idea about "Live At Wembley '86 25th Anniversary", but its initial sales were probably 3,000 copies. The three "Deep Cuts" series will have had 1,000 sales each, not more.

                        • Thank you HUR, you did really a great work. Perhaps, there will be other new shipments for Christmas, even if the most has been already done. However these figures are very good.

                                  • Queen frontman Freddie Mercury passed away 20 years ago today (November 24, 1991). He was 45.

                                    Over the course of his all too short career, Mercury enjoyed a great deal of chart success, both with Queen and as a solo artist. In total he clocked up 15 Top 10 studio albums (including seven Number 1 albums) and 28 Top 10 singles (including five Number 1s).

                                    To commemorate the anniversary of his death, the Official Charts Company have compiled a list of the UKs most downloaded Queen tracks.

                                    The Top 20 is as follows:

                                    01 DON'T STOP ME NOW

                                    • I was 4 when Freddie died, but I can quite remember that time. Freddie was everywhere - on the radio, tv...I asked my mother who was he and she replied "The greatest performer on Earth...". She was right! For me, Freddie is much better than MJ.
