What were we buying?



lady gaga glasonbury 2009

2009 produced some suprises in the music industry. At the beginning of the year we had never heard of Susan Boyle, and assumed that there would be an X-factor winner for the christmas No.1-Again!!

Lady GaGa along with the Black eyed peas, impressivley both have three entries into our top 20 of best selling music in 2009, along several acts associated with the X-factor.

Suprisingly the 'come back kings' Take That don't appear in this list, nor does new girl Pixie Lott, or, old hands George Micheal, Beyonce, and even Michael Jackson.
So here they are;
