If you have a journey planned to visit those long lost relatives over Christmas, you may want some influence over the music. You have a choice to either throw your sisters CD out of the window or get a new album. We take a quick look at the best selling albums from 2019, so you will know what to put on your list for Santa.
1. The Greatest Showman – Soundtrack : The soundtrack to the movie – that shares the same name! Even though the film came out in 2017, the soundtrack is still topping the charts, and it’s quite catchy too.
2. Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent – Lewis Capaldi : If you haven’t already got fed up with radio stations replaying these songs, you can annoy your family by playing the album over and over.
3. No 6 Collaborations Project – Ed Sheeran : Ed tries to break the charts again by collaborating with other artists so he can take over all the slots in the top 10. Sadly this doesn’t work in the album chart and he only takes one place, which isn’t even first place.
LOTs of music to choose from – unless you prefer talk radio
4. Staying at Tamara’s – George Ezra : Some catchy songs from young George, whose voice is a cross between an elephant and a trumphet. There is an explicit version of this album so be careful if your buying it for the young’uns – you may be kicked out before Christmas lunch.
5. When we all fall asleep where do we go – Billie Eilish : Billie wins the title for the longest album title of the year. Billie Eilish – (that’s Eilish, not English) is only a teenager and has a unique style, which will freak out a lot of parents when they first hear it. There are two or three songs which you will like, the others may depress you.
6. Bohemian Rhapsody OST – Queen : A rehash of the old Queen songs, thanks to the film about the band. They are not bad songs, but you probably could have found the old albums in Poundland and saved yourself a few quid.
7. Thank you Next – Ariana Grande : The young teeny-bopper gets to seventh in the album chart, thanks to her pop-lovely-duvvy tunes. If shes not singing about being dumped, then shes singing about her new love!
8. A Star is Born – Soundtrack : The third soundtrack in the top 10.The firlm starred Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The CD features the same two people (mostly), as well as a few songs where they have allowed the other cast members to join in. If your not a fan of Lady Gaga then your ‘next song’ button is going to be heavily used.
9. What a Time to Be Alive – Tom Walker : No idea bout this artist, but if you like Tom Walker you are in for a treat. There is no less than 21 songs on this album so if you don’t like one track there there’s plenty more to try. If you don’t like Tom Walker, then you definitely bought the wrong CD.
10. Divide – Ed Sheeran : This is Ed’s third studio album, but was first released in 2017. Luckily for the young chap, it’s sold quite well, so he is still raking in the cash two years later.
