Countdown: Seattle vs. Billboard

I fell out of the habit of posting these, but I thought you might dig seeing what Seattle's taste is (as told through one record store) versus the rest of America.

Here are the top sellers at Silver Platters stores last week:

1. Ray LaMontagne, Gossip in the Grain

tied with

1. Lucinda Williams, Little Honey

3. AC/DC, Black Ice

4. Bob Dylan, Volume 8, Tell Tale Signs: The BO Basic 2 Disc

5. Kings of Leon, Only By The Night

6. Pretenders, Break Up The Concrete

7. Fleet Foxes, Fleet Foxes

8. Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, Raising Sand

9. Cure, 4:13 Dream

10. Michael Franti & Spearhead, All Rebel Rockers

And here's Billboard's Top 10:

1. Twilight, soundtrack

2. AC/DC, Black Ice

3. High School Musical 3: Senior Year, soundtrack

4. Hinder, Take It To The Limit

5. Pink, Funhouse

6. John Legend, Evolver

7. T.I., Paper Trail

8. Andrea Bocelli, Incanto

9. Brad Paisley, Play

10. Rascal Flatts, Greatest Hits Vol. 1

What We Can Learn From This: Americans love movie soundtracks. Also, we've proven,l post-Bush, that we're not TOTAL dipshits. Because we listen to Bocelli and we elected Barack Obama. Suck on that, Western Europe!

What I Can Learn From This: I am the only person in the Pacific Northwest who can't stand Michael Franti. Me + jam bands = ick.
