Death has put Michael’ Jackson back on the charts as King of Pop.

He currently has 18 singles in the ITunes Top 100.

On, the top 15 albums are all his. Then 14 of the next 25 are either by Michael, the Jackson 5, or things like soundtrack to “The Wiz.” Ten more Jackson related CDs fill out the numbers 50-100 on Amazon’s top sellers. It’s pretty much the same on the ITunes Top 100 Albums, as well.

Everything connected to Michael and the Jacksons is selling out. Oddly, Michael’s death has had no effect on Janet Jackson’s albums. Janet has been AWOL since yesterday. She remains the only family member unaccounted for.
