    I cannot see Telephone NOT going to #1 either

    Did Madonna or Kylie even achieve 3/4 #1s in a 12 month period?

    Madonna did with Papa Don't Preach, True Blue and La Isla Bonita from June 86 to April 87.

    Who's That Girl was her next #1, 1 year and 2 weeks after PDP

    Gaga, who performed on last week's X Factor, already has the UK's biggest-selling single of the year so far with 'Poker Face' and currently holds the title for the biggest-selling album of 2009 with The Fame.

    Make that three transatlantic #1 singles if "Bad Romance" tops the US chart this coming week (it's the last chart week of the year for Billboard), she's currently battling Ke$ha and Jay-Z/Alicia Keys for it.

    All the sales added up for her five hits must be pretty impressive too in terms of single sales for one year..

    How does that compare to Spice Girls in 1996 or Britney in 1999?

    That'd be more than Britney sold from her three singles in 1999 certainly (they probably came to around 2.1 - 2.2 million - 1.5 million being 'Baby One More Time').

    As for the Spice Girls, they sold about 3 million in 1996 (both 'Wannabe' and '2 Become 1' toppped a million each).

    Presumably '2 Become 1' didn't do it in 1996 though, did it? I mean it's only just over a million in total, isn't it?

    The Spice Girls' 1996 single sales were phenomenal - especially considering they only launched in June.

    GaGa's had the whole year to get her sales, AND in the download era - AND with more singles.

    LOCAL STAR

    Had the Spice Girls launched in the digital era they would have had a shitload of individual album track downloads as well, no doubt.

    Yes, I'm not quite sure how you'd break that one down, but it "only" spent four weeks in the top 10, so it probably did a good portion of its total sales before the year was out.

    Did sales still PLUMMET in the new year back then? It was a bit before the shopping period started Boxing Day wasn't it?

    Are you sure? Last week it was Kings of Leon and I believe that, as of this week, it's Susan Boyle.

    It's why we have such odd number ones like Bring Your Daughter… To The Slaughter
