Hmm...why the sudden burst of sales for Edge when the Up All Night episode aired the week before?

Is it possible most people who purchased the song also DVRed the episode?

So, $55,000 in download sales is good, for 2 weeks, for 4 songs?

Can I ask you why Dreams and Go Your Own Way haven't been ceritified Gold digitally. Also, does that mean whe Edge of Seventeen goes gold, does that mean it is not going to get any credit.? This really weird.

This whole sales thing is weird. Obviously, Fleetwood Mac has more gold songs then they get credit for and so does Stevie Nicks. It's bullshit.
