Michael Jackson Record Sales Skyrocket

Michael Jackson's music is still living large.

According to the LA Times, MJ's record sales have exceeded 9 million -- just since his death!

For the third week in a row, Michael's music has dominated the billboard charts and people are running out to get their hands on anything and everything Michael-related.

"We're seeing a real outpouring from fans and consumers who are looking to connect and get past what's happened -- the tragedy of his death -- through attaching themselves to his music," said Gary Arnold, senior entertainment officer for Best Buy said.   "They're buying a pretty broad spectrum of his work; they aren't just buying 'Thriller' but a broad range of titles from throughout Michael's career. Realistically we expect to see people connecting at unprecedented levels through Christmas."

A spokesman for Amazon.com said, "The customer response to Michael Jackson's death has been staggering and unprecedented -- we took more orders for Jackson CDs and MP3s in the first 24 hours after his death than we did in the previous 11 years of the Amazon music store."

Everybody still wants a piece of Michael. Will he ever rest in peace?
