Number One Selling Recording Artists Of All Times

Today The Beatles can be named the highest selling artists in the world. And there is nobody can argue this. And of course, there is a reason for this.

Just think about the following: in period from 1964 to 1970 The Beatles had 20 number one singles. The other incredible thing concerning this band is that they had the TOP 5 songs on the US Billboard charts. And this is not to mention that they had two number one singles in 1996, what gives them 22 number one singles in total.

In 1967 the legendary band released one of the most critically acclaimed albums in Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band. It could be easily said that the release of that particular album had modified the rock music forever. That time plenty of critics from all over the world said that The Beatles opened a door into a new room for recording by adding sounds and instruments that were not used on rock-and-roll records before.

Pitiful, but no singles were released from that album, but at least 2 more number ones could be added to their total. However it is not to mention that they would have had at least one more number one single with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. If you think that this is just an assumption, you are wrong. This statement could be based on fact that Elton John took that song to number one in 1974 with the help of John Lennon.

Another thing to take into account is that even after that band had ended, they were still popular and successful. In 1976 The Beatles had a top 10 hit with Got to Get You into My Life. Remember that this was only 6 years after The Beatles had ended and 10 years after the song had been released.

But every participant of the band deserves several words about. There is one thing that proves that even after breaking up, The Beatles was still a success. Each participant of the band had at least one number one single as a solo artist. Frankly speaking, you will not find any band in history that is able to make the same claim. After breaking up, George, Ringo and John worked as solo artists. But Paul McCartney started one of the most successful groups of the 1970s with Wings.

After John Lennon had received his number one single as a solo artist he took some years off of recording in order to raise his son. We could just imagine how many more number one singles he would have produced if he had not leaved the music industry.

Nowadays it can be said that The Beatles are one of the most successful artists of all time. Frankly speaking, their music is out of time and space and is still heard on radio and TV even if it was released 40 years ago.

At all times music artists have been in focus of attention of many people who love music. So it is little wonder that there are a number of best music artists contests and charts. Luckily today it is easy for music fans to satisfy their hunger for top music artists 2011 or any other music news via the Internet.
