Question Platinum honors

Paul's single for "Mull Of Kintyre" became the biggest selling single in the UK. How long did it take from release date to certified platinum date? Bonus Point: What song did it replace as the biggest selling single?

Released on Nov 19th, 1977. For the One Millionth copy, EMI had been keeping count carefully, pressed it up and sold it to David Ackroyd who was then presented on December 23rd with a specially pressed Disc.

It replaced She Loves You.

Did MOK sell more? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Thumbs up

j-man is correct. Three weeks after release, "Mull Of Kintyre" was certified platinum and it did replace "She Loves You".
