Twist and Shout has gone Sliver for 200,000 sales.
If you could add on EP sales of 800,000 they would have another UK million seller.
Lol Brian, they (the OCC) seem to do as they please mate, so why not add on the EP sales and have another million seller to the endless list of increasingly irrelevant awards? I mean, they have done it already with 'Jailhouse Rock' which is 'allowed' in Presley's all-time list but maybe not in other tabulations like 'million sellers'?
Who actually keeps up any more? Ohttps://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic ... 25bviously
not me although I see counting track playing has already added another silver to Elvis' collection under automated rules - 'Burning Love' having gone over 200k. As I've mentioned elsewhere, why not just fastforward a few years and recognise 40-50 Presley/Beatles tracks as automatic awards now and be done with it. What does it all prove?
Anyway, aside from my usual 'bah, humbug' on this topic I hope you're passing a convivial festive season mon ami? We all could do with a break from the Xmas songs chart invasion too btw...
