Home Music Amy Winehouse CDs, LPs Sell Like Crazy Even Though She Never Came...

Death has turned Amy Winehouse into a bestseller again. But in physical product, not digital. Since her death on Friday, Amy’s CDs and even her vinyl LPs are selling like crazy. The albums “Frank” and “Back in Black” in all forms are selling like crazy on amazon.com, pushing them up the charts to the top 10. Even the “Back in Black” vinyl edition has jumped. It does like everyone wants a souvenir — but an actual one, not a digital one. According to the ITunes charts, none of Winehouse’s music has made a dent on their charts. It’s not the same at amazon, where the MP3 download charts show “Back in Black” at number 3. Look for everything related to Winehouse to sell like crazy for the rest of this week. It’s always the same when a celebrity dies, and it’s a shame. And the whole thing with Winehouse is even more curious considering she never set foot in the U.S. following her breakthough in 2007. For the 2008 Grammy Awards she was denied a US visa. Her performance was on satellite from London.
