    And lots of his albums and tracks have been charting high as well.
    I know he's just died but I can't see why the sale of these things have gone up so suddenly. It's not like now he's gone these things have magically become unavailable and people will have to fight for the few copies left.

    I didn't want to listen to it while he was alive, I still don't want to listen to it, now that he's dead.

    i remember when i was in high school there was a guy who was a huge michael jackson fan. he had this vinyl picture disc of thriller that he brought to school in a glass case. he said it had never been played before and it was his prized possession. i wonder what he could get for that today if he sold it.

    People are weird. Can't really see why someone dying would make you suddenly want their music, but meh. Means they're not buying stuff I want, so it's all good.

    Ebay:
    Is that vinyl, cd or cassette?

    And this doesn't surprise me. Some people are looking to rip off people, others just want the nostalgia of it all.

    Seeing as how whoever owns the rights to it (not to mention those who don't pirating it) can just continue to make as many copies of it as they want, yeah you'd have to be pretty stupid to pay $150 dollars on e-bay for a Thriller CD.

    I saw the vinyl Thiller album in pretty good condition at a car boot sale last weekend for £3. Paying $150 for one kinda seems dumb by comparison.

    Shoulda picked it up and sold it on for great profit.

    Although it seems ridiculous seeing as its one of the biggest selling pieces of vinyl ever. :lol
