Thriller_l Michael Jackson may be gone, but his music is definitely living on. A quick look at iTunes’ and Amazon’s best-seller lists reveals a virtual run on the King of Pop’s albums. On the current iTunes Top Ten Albums chart, he’s taken over seven spots, starting with the 2005 five-disc retrospective The Essential Michael Jackson.

Rounding out the list? The 25th-anniversary edition of his 1982 blockbuster Thriller, 2008 hits package Number Ones, his 1979 solo breakthrough Off the Wall, 2004 boxed set Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection, 1987’s Bad and 1991’s Dangerous

On iTunes’ Singles chart, the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” is still No. 1, but MJ singles “Man in the Mirror,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Thriller,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” and “Smooth Criminal” are scattered throughout the top 10. On Amazon, he’s even more dominant: The Top 10 best-selling albums are currently all Jackson.
