Michael Jackson CDs Flying Off The Shelf!

It is 5:30 AM and I am already spinning BAD. I don`t know what this tells you? Furthermore, when he sings BAD it takes on different meanings! What is he saying exactly? I believe in street talk Bad means good, or very gifted, but I suspect I`m getting ‘signal interference’ from the media. Anyway, I am taking more of an interest in the snowballing surge of sales of Michael Jackson`s albums. There are lots of statistics to wade through, but the one that sticks with me is that he occupies the top ten positions in the album charts *(sub-category ‘Top Pop Catalog’). That`s easy enough to remember (sort of).

My goodness, this is getting complicated now. They have to account for physical and digital albums now, so that may be fodder for some of the confusion. I am seeing the top ten positions mainly under the ‘Top Pop Catalog.’ So here`s your M.J. shopping list: 1.Number Ones, 2.Thriller, 3. The Essential Michael Jackson, 4. Off The Wall, 5. Dangerous, 6.Bad, 7. The Ultimate Collection (Jackson 5), 8. The Ultimate Collection (Michael Jackson), 9.Invisible, 10.Greatest Hits: HIStory –Volume 1. Goodness Gravy, I didn`t even know that he had released that many albums! By the way, Man In The Mirror is the top selling single!michael_jackson-iiii

It`s been reported that 800,000 album sales were purchased last week, both as physical and digital products. I have a feeling that things will change drastically in just a fraction of a milli-second. Last Friday I picked up three M.J. titles at Waterloo *(one of the last standing brick & mortar record shops in the U.S.A.), here in Austin. They actually had a M.J. display in the front of the store! People were grabbing CDs left and right in the few minutes I was in the store. Exciting to watch, actual retail activity! Maybe M.J. can bring the music industry back from the dead? They didn`t have Invincible or HIStory, and I want to get those titles, so Epic/Sony start up the presses! *P.S. (I need T-Shirts too!)  ‘KING POPS’
