Apropos of music

Of the twenty-five best-selling albums of all time, twelve were releases from the 1970s.

Three were country albums.

Hootie and the fuckin' Blowfish made the list (and if that doesn't surprise you, you're one up on me).

Two were soundtracks.

Five were "greatest hits" collections.

Seven were double albums. (So much for the old conventional wisdom that double albums weren't commercially viable.)

Garth Brooks, Led Zeppelin, and the Eagles each have two albums in the top 25. The Beatles have three.

Alanis Morrisette's "Jagged Little Pill" is #15.
