Is this on your iPod?

This snippet from our friendly folks from AP about the hot sellers for 2007 om iTunes.

No, Led Zeppelin wasn't on the list, so quit complaining that we're blogging too much about Plant and Page. It's been 30 years, for cryin' out loud.

OK, back to the real story:
Maroon 5 and Fergie hold the top spots on iTunes’ year-end sales roundup. The online music store released its top-selling albums and singles Tuesday, though it declined to release actual sales figures.

Maroon 5’s sophomore album, “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long,” was the No. 1 seller on the site, followed by Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” and Kanye West’s “Graduation.” Winehouse and West are also leaders heading into the 50th annual Grammy Awards — he has eight nominations, she has six.

Rounding out the top five best-selling albums were “American Idol” alum Chris Daughtry’s band’s self-titled debut, “Daughtry,” and “Coco” by newcomer Colbie Caillat, who has the hit “Bubbly.”
There's more to this story all over the Web, including on iTunes' Web site, and here too.
