Random I know, but I’m getting my ideation ‘gears’ back into motion following the Summer break (it’s absolutely true that the best way to have brilliant ideas is to have lots of ideas).
Brilliant Idea #36 is a title for a debut album. Greatest Hit.
Before you think, “how stupid”, here’s the genius;
Top selling albums in the UK from the 90’s
What’s the story, morning glory, Oasis
Stars, Simply Red
Spice, Spice Girls
Talk on Corners, The Corrs
Jagged lIttle Pill, Alanis Morisette
Urban Hymns, The Verve
Now tell me that those albums weren’t actually the artists’ Greatest hits!
Top selling albums of to naughties
Back to Bedlam, James Blunt
No Angel, Dido
White Ladder, David Gray
Scissor Sisters, Scissor Sisters
Hopes and Fears, Keane
Ditto, tell me, honestly, whether these artists released anything else after these albums to surpassed them. In other words, their debut album was their greatest hit.
So, why not just admit it, the first album is probably going to be their greatest hit. So call the album Greatest Hit.
