I was reading about the history of the Billboard 200 record chart ranking publication on WikipediA. When I ran across this truly amazing statistic.
As of 2008, Pink Floyd‘s The Dark Side of the Moon has been on the charts for over 1,630 weeks, or approximately 31 years. Consecutively, the album spent a record 773 weeks on the Billboard 200. The other weeks were spent on the Top Pop Catalog Albums chart.
I have owned a copy of this album(vinyl) for most of the 31 years it was on the charts. I still own a turntable and a vinyl copy of Dark Side of the Moon. I think I will take a musical lunch break this afternoon and escape from reality for about an hour.
