The news of Michael Jackson's death has dominated the news these last few days. It's a fitting tribute to the King of Pop that due to the unprecedented reaction to his passing that his music has climbed the singles and albums charts.

His hits are the soundtrack to many of our lives, an entire generation have been inspired by his genius so understandably people are reaching out to show their appreciation by purchasing the music of Michael Jackson.

I followed the top ten at my parents briefly via Radio 1 but it's the download chart that caught my attention the most as on iTunes his albums hold nearly every position in the top ten. Currently Number Ones holds the number one position and in the singles chart Man in the Mirror is the highest entry which also entered at the top of the charts.
(Official Singles Charts) A staggering 43 out of the top 200 singles feature Michael Jackson. The highest Jackson entry is 'Man In The Mirror' at number 11. There are a total of five Jackson singles in the Top 30 and 20 in the Top 75. ~ NME
