I was speaking to someone once who told me that this is (was?) the greatest selling 12-inch of all time. Like, more than Elvis or the Beatles. Can anyone confirm or deny? Sounds a little out there...

It is the best-selling 12" single ever, though partly because it wasn't ever released as a 7".

I have the mashup with the 'We Want Your Soul' accapella over it. =\

...but I have Bizarre Love Triangle on 12", does that save me any face?

I'm not cool I've never owned it.

But there is the wiki on it..

At nearly 7 and a half minutes in length, "Blue Monday" is one of the longest tracks to ever chart in the UK. It is recognised as the biggest selling 12-inch single of all time, but as Factory Records were not members of the British Phonographic Industry association, it was not eligible for an official gold disc. However, the Official UK Chart Company have estimated its total UK sales at over one million. In the all-time UK best-selling singles chart they published in 2002, "Blue Monday" came 76th.

Didn't they tour last year (?) in support of their last album? Or am I just having a fantasy?
I still remember their last T.O. appearance at Kingswood, when Barney tried to chedw his face off (and Sunscreem opened and "stole" the show)...

He's actually touring around DJing all sorts of venues and did the same a few months back in Toronto.

He'll be in Miami. I know the guy from the booking agency who takes care of him. :)

Cheers,

I've got the 83 version and an 88 remix version.

I found the 83 version in a huge pile of records that the student-run nightclub at the university where I work was getting rid of. I was a kid in a candy store that day.
