Thanks. Impressive. Although I only know the Oricon numbers, but to be honest, it's impressive to see the shipments figures. :D
Do you know which title are under-certified or over-certified?
In 1990's, there seemed to be a big difference between Oricon's sales and RIAJ's certification. However, I think that it's a proper numbers now.
but in the 90's, certifications included import sales while Oricon's charts didn't - now, the Oricon charst include imports so that's why the difference between shipments and certifications are small
I think that Imports are not included in RIAJ's certifications.
It's based on a report of total shipment numbers from a sale date from member companies and certificates it.
A member company does not import Imports. Therefore, Imports are not included in the number that a member company reports it to.

I know only latest TOP3.
(LP+CT+CD sales)
12,430k Mariah Carey
8,940k The Beatles
5,520k Carpenters
thanks for the Top 3! I guess Madonna is #4 and Bon Jovi #5

also, i always tought that RIAJ's certifications included imports. if they don't, i don't see why Madonna's TIC would be certified Million and COAD 2x Platinum (500k), since it's sales (including imports) are around 390k to-date

Like other countries, aren't the certs for shipments? Granted, if COADF is at 390K, woudl an additional 110K be in stores? Maybe so. If it's certified for 500K, it must be a valid shipment figure.

It's her biggest album in Japan since Immaculate Collection!

There is the interesting blog which compared RIAJ's certifications with Oricon's sales.
http://blog.livedoor.jp/folder7/archives/2005-08.html

ACOUSTIC FLATTE-EVERY LITTLE THING's sales was 136,553, but got Platinum's certification.

According to this, shipments seem to have tripled the sales in 1990's.
Many record companies seem to have reported the number of the excessive shipment for the making of topic of an artist.

If Japanese record store order it's records straight from the USA instead of local distributors, records are part of USA shipments. That's why imports have nothing to do with RIAJ certifications.

Hello Mario, I have a request this weeks, and you surely can help me. Well, I know that the song "I was born to love you" was released in three different times in Japan: the first was as Freddie Mercury solo single in 1985 (features on the album "Mrs bad guy"), the second in 1995 as a Queen single, and of course, in 2004 again as a Queen single.

The thing that I want to know is the peak positions for each release on international charts (I already know their highest ones on overall charts). So I would like to know about the international charts for those singles, only the peak positions, not the whole chart runs.

I hope you can help me with this difficult information, thank you.

I need some help regarding sales, certification, chart positions and complete Top 100 chart runs (if possible) for these
A musician's albums and singles which jayspice enumerated are hardly made into a chart a rank.

It was ranked as follows.

SPICE GIRLS (Singles)
"Wannabe"..............#50,10weeks, 51,930

SPICE GIRLS (Albums)
"Spice [Original Edition]"...........# 7, 33weeks, 491,000
"Spiceworld".........................# 6, 14weeks, 203,000
"Forever"............................#12, 5weeks, 39,500

MELANIE C (Singles)
"Northern Star"......................#99, 1week, 2,280

GERI HALLIWELL (Albums)
"Schizophonic".......................#85, 1week, 3,190

"complete Top 100 chart runs" is investigated shortly at a library.

Don't forget that many japanese cds are sold in europe, US, ... (as collector items) and it's not hard to imagine that at least 50k were sold out side Japan + the ones that are in Japan stores and you reach 500K
