The Dark Side Of The MoonProof that you cannot keep a good album down, Pink Floyd's landmark 1973 album "The Dark Side of the Moon" has re-entered the US Billboard 200 charts, following a revamp of qualification rules. Coming back in at number 189, the last time the album was on the Billboard chart was October 8th, 1988. This reappearance marks its incredible 742nd week on the chart.

It easily outranks the other longest charting albums, with the top five being as follows:

742 weeks: "Dark Side of the Moon," Pink Floyd (1973)
490 weeks: "Johnny's Greatest Hits," Johnny Mathis (1958)
480 weeks: "My Fair Lady," Original Cast (1956)
331 weeks: "Highlights From the Phantom of the Opera," Original Cast (1990)
302 weeks: "Tapestry," Carole King (1971)

Our thanks to Brett Wilkins for the info.
