"Somebody That I Used To Know", the mega selling single from New Zealand based Gotye, has been revealed as the UK's biggest selling track for 2012. The Official Charts Company has released their top ten for this year. Gotye's track, which entered the UK singles chart at #1 back in February, has so far sold 1.28 million copies. "Somebody That I Used To Know" is one of just 123 songs to have scored over a million sales in the chart's 60 year history. The current top ten list is as follows:
1. Gotye ft. Kimbra - "Somebody That I Used To Know" 2. Carly Rae Jespen - "Call Me Maybe" 3. Fun. ft. Janelle Monae - "We Are Young" 4. Davd Guetta ft. Sia - "Titanium" 5. Nicki Minaj - "Starships" 6. Jessie J - "Domino" 7. Maroon 5 ft. Wiz Khalifa - "Payphone" 8. Flo Rida ft. Sia - "Wild Ones" 9. Psy - "Gangnam Style" 10. Emeli Sandé - "Next to Me"
There is no guarantee that these figures will remain unchanged for the rest of the year, as December is traditionally a month for record breaking sales.
This week's UK singles chart has seen a surprise re-entry from Aussie rockers AC/DC, whose back catalogue was re-released on iTunes last week. "Back in Black", which was first a single for the band in 1980, re-entered the chart at at #53.
