The Fab Four have proven to be just as popular in the digital age. Rolling Stone reports that the Beatles have sold more than 450,000 albums and 2 million songs worldwide in the first week that their music became available for purchase on iTunes.
On November 16, the band's 13 original albums, two-volume "Past Masters" compilation and "1962-66" and "1967-70" collections were released on iTunes as both albums and individual songs.
As of Tuesday, "Abbey Road," the White Album and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" had landed on iTunes's top 20 albums chart, and 15 albums had made the top 100.
According to Rolling Stone, "Abbey Road" was the best-selling album in the U.S., while the best-selling song was "Here Comes the Sun." Seven of the Beatles's singles currently sit on the top 100 song chart, including "Let It Be," which is listed twice because it appears on two different albums.
Who are these humps?
I absolutely LOVE the beatles! Anyone who is not a beatles fan does not know real music! They will never die down in my books and a lot of others I know who really enjoy their music! Their music will live on forever!
portalpunk thinks the beatles are good for itunes
i have noticed that people react by saying they cannot understand the sales surge of the Beatles songs when they have them already, not realizing that there may be other people that don't, especially the younger ones. Let other people discover their music, too.
I love how it shows Apple's home page on a Macbook Air, but it's displayed on Google Chrome instead of Safari. What? No love for Safari?
I don't necessarily understand this beatles surge – it must be pedestrian fans. Any fan of the band will already have them on their ipods – hell I had all their albums on my ipod in 2003.
I love the beatles
