A throwback from someone's LPs...
There have been eight number one David Bowie albums in the UK, and here they are with the corresponding information for each. I.E. Aladdin Sane was the 125th number one album and it reached the top on 5/5/1973. (That's the non-American dating system for obvious reasons)
125 ~ Aladdin Sane 5/5/1973
133 ~ Pin Ups 3/11/1973
142 ~ Diamond Dogs 8/6/1974
238 ~ Scary Monsters And Super Creeps 27/9/1980
280 ~ Let's Dance 23/4/1983
301 ~ Tonight 6/10/1984
405 ~ Changesbowie 31/3/1990
477 ~ Black Tie White Noise 17/4/1993
It's a surprising list when one considers what are now reckoned to be Bowie's classic works. But record sales have never truly been about artistic value, otherwise David Bowie would be richer than Bill Gates!
Having said that, there have been nineteen other top ten Bowie albums in the UK, with fourteen of those reaching the top five. That's twenty two top five albums in total...lord, he probably is as rich as Bill Gates!
