This thread of ‘best selling singles going back to 14,000BC’ is an absolute treat

People are loving this thread created by @jazzemu_ and @AdrianRMG charting the ‘best selling single of every decade all the way back to 14,000BC’.

Composer and all-round good guy @mrnickharvey said it’s one of the best things he’s ever seen on Twitter. And you’ll see why.


And here’s just a little bit of the love it generated.
