I should point this out to anyone who doesn't realize it but I DIDN'T MAKE THIS LIST! I mean, I did. I wrote it down. I stared at a bunch of websites that made claims as to "album sales" in the United States and Kenya. But from there, I had no control over what they said the "sales" were. The reason Abbey Road is #25 and The Forrest Gump soundtrack is #11 is because, well, because that's the order I typed it in and I didn't feel like retyping it to suggest that there is some sort of logic to any of this. Sometimes I feel like I'm writing about hamburgers!
Anyhow, enough about me. What follows are my theories on who actually bought these albums and sometimes why. When I don't know an answer, I do like any other hungover college student and make it up!
