the GH is still £4.99 on UK itunes and #136. It has been top 200 now since Dec 17th. It obviously wont be selling huge amounts but it shows that if it is reasonably priced (after all it is 10 years old this year) then there is demand for it.

Also if they can keep it at £4.99 when their music gets an unexpected boost, like SYBT being performed on X factor this year, then the boost will be maximised by the reasonable price.

The GH is currently #108 in the UK

and #79 in India, anyone know why? :)

Also they have 9 entries in the Top 30 iTunes chart in Bahrain - people obviously downloading the greatest hits tracks as all of their main singles appear, with Wannabe being the highest at #19 :D

GH #184 in the UK

Wannabe is at #87 in Japan.

The version that's charting in Japan is from the Virgin Record's 40th anniversary record released last year.

I think that the extra sales would more than make up for that, especially if it gets a random boost from somewhere where the cheap price will entice more casual buys.

I think in the long run the cheaper price is smarter, especially when you see what some other greatest hits have sold this year (ABBA Gold sold 90k in the UK) - it's a smart move also to promote their overall catalog... however, record companies tend to think in short term profits, so...

Yep they are old enough now that any new generation coming along is likely to pick up the GH and go from there. I always think GH should be cheap after the first year of release as they are a gateway to getting people into an artist.

If their company cared about sales at all, they'd have had better releases with new remixes on all the songs and box sets, push photoshoots, release the documentaries on DVD and even TROTSG tour...

These are fan sales (ie us). Doesn't matter in the long run or they would've overloaded ABBA Gold with this stuff.

This site claims that Wannabe is the World's 46th best selling single of all time with sales of 10.4 million?

Is this accurate?

Okay thank you for letting me know.

By the end of 1997 it had sold over 7 million worldwide, would be great if it was over 10 million now :D

Considering that by the end of 1990's it had sold over 1 million copies in the US, and our most recent update was that it has sold over 3 million in the US (showing sales of 1.5-2 million more) I can believe that it has sold around or over 10 million.

Wannabe is one of those trickle sellers. It might never amount to much chartwise post-1997, but it's a consistent seller. I can believe it's sold passed 10 million plus with the digital and Spotify era.
