High School Musical rules the roost in 2006

In 2006 ‘High School Musical’ sold 3.7 million albums last year joining ‘The Bodyguard’ and ‘Titanic’ as the only soundtracks to finish atop the sales charts.

Remarkably, ‘High School Musical’ debuted on the charts at
number 143 in January 2006. The disc increased its position each week,
eventually hitting the top spot on two nonconsecutive weeks in March.
It was the first TV soundtrack to hit number one since the ‘Miami Vice’ soundtrack in the ’80s and was the first soundtrack of any kind to hit number one since ‘Bad Boys II’ in ’03.

High School Musical also sold 123,000 albums as digital downloads. Not a record, but still not too shabby. (Read)

    I was amazed at how many other people enjoyed this cd as much as I did. I kept telling people that it was good, and then after I got them to listen to it, they were hooked as well. It was even on the top albums sold on itunes as well, and I’m sure it’s even still up there!
