Really two categories in this list. First the big storms, the likes Saturday Night Fever, Le Grand Bleu, Bodyguard, Titanic. Those albums arrived, destroyed everything and left. Second, there is huge catalog sellers group. Mostly two of them, Dirty Dancing and Pulp Fiction that did wonders in the long run.

Then, there is Grease. This one had both, the massive hype when first released and incredible catalog sales with unmatchable revivals all along the 90s, bringing it to outstanding total sales.

If we talk about worldwide-sales, Celine Dion’ s “S’il Suffisait D’Aimer” album is the second best-selling french album of all time, behind “D’eux”

Salut MJ.
Un classement de ce style est-il prévu concernant les ventes totales d’artistes français ou francophones ?
Ce serait intéressant d’avoir des estimations sérieuses pour contrer les aberrations que l’on lit souvent (comme les centaines de millions de Tino, Mireille, Dalida, Aznavour, Sardou, Adamo…)

No Gilbert Bécaud, no Yves Montand, no Avril Lavigne….:)
