Interest in MJ fading fast

It appears after the onslaught of Michael Jackson news, interest has
waned quickly. Two weeks ago, his music accounted for about half of
the top ten lists (songs and albums) on iTunes.
Last week, he was down to a couple songs and couple of albums.
This week, he is off the top ten list of songs downloaded, and only
his "Essential Michael Jackson" album was in the top-ten list for
albums and this only ranked at number 4.
Who is hot? The Black Eyed Peas have had top songs or multiple songs
throughout the month.
Also, this week sees the addition of the Harry Potter soundtrack
album in the top ten.
Most interesting to me, "Man on the Moon" was the top MJ song two
weeks ago, beating out "Beat It" and "Billie Jean."
My wife downloaded those last two songs after he died but I think
that was it. I'm sure a lot of people had to update their collections
as their MJ music was likely cassette or vinyl and those require work
to download onto iTunes or mp3 players.
