Thriller pulls ahead of Eagles on Soundscan

There are 31 comments on the new.music.yahoo.com story from Aug 20, 2009, titled Thriller pulls ahead of Eagles on Soundscan. In it, new.music.yahoo.com reports that:

As we all know Michael jackson's Thriller is the #1 best selling album of all time WORLDWIDE. But in the U.S. in the 90's it was taken over by the Eagles Greatest hits. But now in the U.S. Thriller is #1. "Thriller this week pulls ahead of the Eagles' Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 on Nielsen/SoundScan's recap of the best-selling albums in its history. Thriller has sold 5,366,000 copies since May 25, 1991, compared to 5,356,000 for the Eagles' compilation. The Recording Industry Assn. of America, which goes back much further than 1991, continues to list the Eagles' album as its all-time best-seller, at 29 million, with Thriller a beat behind at 28 million. Expect movement there soon." There have been TONS of GREAT news about MJ and his success since his passing but I haven't posted them. But MJ has broken countless records since his passing. Billboard records, chart records all over the world, viewership records, internet trafficking records, etc. etc. You name it.

At least the editor of this site is finally acknowledging that he isn't posting ALL of the great things that MJ has accomplished. Just like all the other media hounds, just the negative crap. MJ was a trend-setter and broke countless records. The information IS out there.

Doesn't that just eat at your basher/hater soul having someone post a good story? Now go ahead and bury this post with 5 bad ones. You know you already have some saved just that purpose. CLOSET F'LOON!

You prolly missed it when I begged Kurt to come back and post his positive stories, f'loonie. You prolly missed it because you always claim to have missed stuff that doesn't fit into your current conspiracy theory, f'loonnut.

Now go sulk in the corner. We'll call you when we want you to lick our balls again.

No wonder the world is what it is, people are so negative, and seem to enjoy it.
Heal the world.

This Has been a long time coming. Thriller should have passed the eagles already. This month or next month it will become the best selling album in US history and it will stay there.

And then it will fade into obscurity. It tells you just how bad the music industry has gotten. All the garbage that is being pumped out nowadays and there is nothing to give it competition. Sad.
