The UK’s Official Albums Chart has compiled a list of the 60 top-selling albums. Queen’s 1981 Greatest Hits takes the number-one spot by a landslide, being the only album to break 6 million sales on the chart. Queen brought a whole new meaning to the phrase over the top. While rock and roll flamboyance stretched back at least as far as Little Richard, Freddie Mercury continued to camp it up, taking little seriously and smirking at the music's growing pretensions while partaking in them no small bit. Many of the band's singles hold up extremely well, such as Killer Queen and You're My Best Friend. The quartet's canny sense of melody and sophisticated vocal harmonies - not to mention Mercury's raised eyebrow - have traveled well through the years.
