The best-selling records in the UK - How many do you have?
1. Fine Line – Harry Styles
The former one direction singers 2019 album beat out classic bands such as Fleetwood Mac and Queen to the number one spot. We’re not sure how this album is going to date in the long term, but it’s perfect for a good bop at home.

2. Rumours – Fleetwood Mac
Having this album classic on your shelf in a Zoom call will definitely earn you a nod of appreciation from any music-fan. The 1975 album includes hits such as 'Don't stop' and 'Never Going Back Again'.

3. Greatest Hits – Queen
It's no surprise that Queen is among the most sold vinyl albums in the UK. As much as we'd all love to own the entire discography of the British rock band, having all the hits on one vinyl records definitely has its appeal.
Buy now: Greatest Hits by Queen Vinyl, £21.26, Amazon (opens in new tab)
4. Dark Side of the Moon – Pink Floyd
The cover art on this particular album is nothing short of iconic. The poster has adorned many university room and twenty something walls. However, if you are past the age of posters, we'd suggest investing in the vinyl itself – if you haven't already – to display and soundtrack you new working from home regimen.
Buy now: Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd Vinyl, £18.55, Amazon (opens in new tab)
5. Back To Black – Amy Winehouse
This one is a personal favourite in my own record collection. Amy Winehouse is still drawing in the fans with her second album released in 2006. Back to black is the second best selling record in the 21st century to date, and it still seems to be going strong.
Buy now: Back to Black by Amy Winehouse Vinyl, £11.99, Amazon (opens in new tab)

6. Abbey Road (50th Anniversary) – The Beatles
