So Adele outsells Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”…

…in the UK.

I don’t have anything against Adele’s voice and 21 is a pretty good album (my fave track is Rumor Has It). But I’m sickened of her overexposure and every single motherfucker covering her songs in hopes of getting famous as an Adele imitator (though I’m a hypocrite for being very impressed with that Kurt Cobain impersonator from Peru). But when I read about Adele surpassing MJ’s Thriller — a masterpiece of pop music — in album sales via Twitter, my blood boiled… until I realized it was only in the UK and not of all-time. Thank God.

The artists that Adele needs to surpass are:

  • Oasis – (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?
  • ABBA – Gold
  • The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club
  • Queen – Greatest Hits

While Oasis’ overall career dropped halfway through, I’d be pissed if Adele surpasses this album in top sales. And I would rage if she gets to be #1. But considering how things go with fame and publicity, Adele might surpass them all in sales (except Beatles and Queen). :S
