But they printed "The Wall", so maybe it was Pink Floyd.MJDangerous wrote:Truly shocked to see that 'Off The Wall' was a top 10 album over a year after its release in Portugal
It can't have been Pink Floyd considering that when Off The Wall was at #4 The Wall was charted tooHUR wrote:
Great that Queen's First Ep charted at #10. The only country where I knew it had charted was UK (#17 in 1977), so this means that it did better in portugal than in any other country.
I really don't know about OTW and Bad but the best selling albums of each year were selling 100k give or take at the time. Looking at how massive albums like Saturday Night Fever were, I wouldn't be surprised if a such album sold 150-200k back at the time.jcguzman wrote:MJ.Do you have an estimation of how many copies a huge album could sell in Portugal between 1978 and 1980.
I am interested in Spirits Having Flown by the Bee Gees which spent more than 7 months in the top 10.
Besides do you have figures for Off the Wall and Bad in Portugal.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
Please, can you post those charts?Mikerocha wrote:for those interested last june i bought the BLITZ portugal magazine and on the 'top singles & albums 20 years ago' showed madonna doing the double, both 'like a prayer' single and album at the top of the charts...

strange to see that back in june 1989 'like a prayer' was still number 1 single
There isn't any database with old charts but people that have old portuguese magazines from the 80's and 90's can find the charts there... i have over 1.000 magazines saved but i get headache just staring
That would be fantastic if he could post those charts.borderwolf wrote:
