no surprises with the Petty re-entries!

will be interested in your thoughts on Shania...

and after that you will have: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie...LMAO
agree on the Petty comment

but just as a topic for discussion

I don't really understand the why
I have never purchased a music product because someone died
If I like their music I would already own it
do people think the industry will stop producing the music when they die?

the music companies flood the market when someone dies, thus, previously hard to find albums are readily available...
so those who didn't want to pay top dollar and/or spend money on air freight can now find those albums readily at cd stores...
^^My two cents for what it’s worth! Yes, the record companies etc., will happily be driving sales - I’m sure they go swinging into production immediately the news breaks, but I don’t think that’s the whole story; I think there’s a tail that wags the dog symbiosis, so to speak and they’re doing it in response to consumer behaviour as well, which they would be sure to exploit to the fullest, of course. 

Because there is usually quite a big public mourning, I expect people feel like they might have missed out on something and are reminded very starkly of their own mortality and how short life really is, so run off to try and fix it by not missing out again, which as we know, they can’t. It's almost like a subconscious collective penance. Strange phenomenon – and just a thort!   Blush
