Ummm… It’s not like they’re going to bury his albums with him guys

I have time and again admitted to not having a soul, but seriously, I don’t get this at all.

That right. How are the Black Eyed Peas on the charts?

No, seriously, why the big rush to buy Michael Jackson’s songs now that he’s dead? Are people planning to have massively depressing listening parties? Or was his death simply a reminder that he used to make music about 15-20 years ago?

    I wonder if sales of Charlies Angels DVDs has gone through the roof as well?

  2. Liam says:

    I feel sorry for the artists that were due to get number 1 and have been knocked off due to his death…

    exactly Doc…
    what kinda fans are these people?
    when he was alive you didn’t buy him MUSIC (albums/singles) now he is dead you are buying….

    1. as Doc said the albums will stay in this world… for ever and ever
    2. the money ain’t going to MJ anymore… it’s mostly record companies and maybe his family
    3. some other artist may announce dead as they need their albums to be sold and make money instead of people downloading it! (so it’s gonna be a tradition i think)

    I’m waiting for the obnoxious midnight TV commercials hawking Michael Jackson’s Greatest Hits for 4 Easy Payments of $19.95.

    Too bad Billy Mays won’t be the pitchman….

    Now that’s funny!

    Ugh.. The Wiz is #56 in Top Movie Sales…

    I’m not gonna defend the buyers sentiment or the doc’s disdain – but keep in mind that the fans that listened to his music were the ones who owned the LPs or cassettes. When CD players were big, noone replaced their collection with mj CDs when they’ve moved on.

    Now that these fans want to remember mj – they have no where else to turn to then rebuying the tracks at .89-$1.29 each.

    I can see buying records or CDs because they could be collectables, but the downloads are going crazy too. The worst time to buy this stuff is right after a person’s death. The sellers are going to charge as much as they think they can get. There are only so many records and CDs, but downloads are forever. Wait until they lower the price.

    could also be ppl like me who after he died had this thought

    OH S**T! I still don’t have a copy of thriller, well good a time as any to get a copy i guess.

    also nothing like dying to boost your record sales

  10. Bjarki says:

    I agree with Smorgasboard. What the Doc obviously fails to realize is that though nobody knew Michael Jackson personally, his music played a part in a lot of people’s lives.

    His passing helps people reminisce, relive memories triggered by the thought of MJ and his music, and many people using the opportunity to dust off old albums, or buy the music they only had on old tapes.

    So, Doc, there are obviously a lot of things you don’t understand, so feel free to keep posting so we can keep setting you straight. 🙂

    I guess I am one of these people. Although I didn’t buy any new album, I did pull out my MJ thriller MTV played a couple time. It is indeed the best.

  12. Or maybe he’s not really dead and this was just a plan to get a lot of money and to get rid of all media attention?

    MJ LIVES! As does Elvis, King Kong and the guy who played Dumbledore in Harry Potter!

    I am guilty of purchasing some songs from iTunes this weekend. I realized that i didn’t have any MJ music on my pod so I should add some. What brought me to this action was hearing all his music from the past and I realized how much I did enjoy them when I was a teenager and wanted them added to the other 600 songs I have.

  14. Matt says:

    Well MMM i watched the Google Trends the day Farrah died and one of the top google searches besides MJ was Farrah Fawcett playboy photos

  15. alex says:

    dude, my point exactly. it’s lime you’ve read my mind ;]

  16. Justin says:

    I think it’s a lot of people in their late 20s that don’t actually have any MP3s of MJ, but they remember listening to him when they were young and decided to give him another listen as a throwback to their youth.

    Bury his albums with him….now there’s a good idea!

    People like to remember good old times and be sad a bit.

  20. Bjarki says:

    It’s called nostalgia. Nothing wrong with that.

    how amazing the house of representative had a moment of silence for a pedophile…
    ever parent should be shouting for reality … he was a music genius but non of that should ever allow that to be forgotten

  22. Ajan says:

    Looks like he came and told you that he was a pedophile, Matsen..

    Anyways, its just that people want to be a part of his music..listening to it..Darrell has a point here
