Default Bon Jovi, Total Sales and Charts Thread (:

Welcome, Here I intend to compile as much data on Bon Jovi Sales, Chart history etc,
With your help or on my own,

I will update The greatest hits charts etc, as this is the current bon jovi album charting, then starting with Bon Jovi (Self Titled).
Will work through all major albums including compilations to see what total sales figures I can get off the net, purely out of personal interest, and perhaps others,

I am aware they say between 125 Million- 130 Million copies sold world wide,
I would like to include singles anything really to get a picture of whats most popular in which countries as I suspect the GH Compilation will be the only new release for quite sometime, need something to keep myself occupied instead of following new chart releases etc.

Lets make this a big thread

Regards

Shannon

Default 1st Album Self Titled Bon Jovi

Off the top of my head track listing:

Runaway
Roulette
She Don't Know Me
Shot Through the heart
Love Lies
Break out
Burning for love
Comeback
Get Ready

Excuse me if im wrong on titles etc,

Released Singles:

Runaway Charted 39# BB hot 100 in 1983
She Don't Know Me 48# BB hot 100 1984
Burning for love (only in Japan from what I can see)

If anyone knows if these singles charted elsewhere please feel free to comment (:

Album itself Sales Charts Etc....

It's said to of sold 4,000,000 copies worldwide,

With 2,000,000 in the US alone but is only certified Platinum, and as the RIAA are very slack at updating certifications I cannot verify this.

It charted at 43# on the BB 200, 39# in Australia, and by the looks of things charted in Canada, Switzerland, and Japan.

This album should of seen more success, Love Lies co written by David Bryan a personal favourite of mine. I will update this when I find more info, please feel free to add your own input.

Ive always been interested in the charts and sales of Bon Jovi.

There isnt a definate number, but I know Runaway charted between 105-101 in Australia. During the 80's, the Australian music charts were called the Kent Music Report. The Kent Music Report only listed the top 100, but it mentioned which songs were hovering just outside that, and Runaway was one of those songs when it was released.

Also, Bon Jovi charted at #71 in the UK.

Default Thanks (:

Good Stuff theres a good start saves me researching it im sure it will be easy to locate the chart positions in the countries that have sales figures and not chart position.
I have a busy day but when im back on will look at HAND very closely as you've already put so much about it there,
As for Australia I see very interesting I remember seeing that Kent Music report on some site recently, when did ARIA form and start doing it?
