Beatles music at last comes to iTunes

It's been a long and winding road, this relationship between Apple and the Beatles.

But Tuesday, at long last, the Fab Four made it to iTunes.

"We're really excited to bring the Beatles' music to iTunes," said Beatle Paul McCartney said in an Apple news release. "It's fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around."

The iTunes store's main page featured a host of Beatles albums for sale, beneath an early photo of the supergroup.

The update came in advance of what Apple had promised would be a 10 a.m. ET announcement that would make Tuesday, "A day to remember."

    The beatles suck and their music thankfully went out with shag hair cuts and rainbow spectacles. The most overrated pop drivel ever put to vinyl. Bury this garbage already.

    The Stones had to beg to Beatles to write a song for them. After that, the Stones saw the light and got popular. The Who imitated Keith Richards, have a great singer- aside from the bassist and drummer, all the Who was was a geeky synthesizer. Hendrix would have been a Great guitar player IF he had taken guitar Lessons, but he didnt, and was known for playing the same songs, over and over.

    The Beatles were all original. Developed their talent by their own will. They defined what four Superior Instrumentalists and Song-writers could do. Everybody in the music business knows that. Nobody cares about you, if you say you don't like the Beatles. There is far more to the Beatles than 99.5% of music listeners on Earth can conceive. One would have to go to Liverpool and Berlin to begin to understand what was up. The Beatles are everything you wish you were- ba'lee dat!

    If you say negative things about the Beatles, you only show your ignorance. I would not diss the Beatles in front of an Employer in the music industry- any propasal that you know quality music, or have musical taste, shall greatly be diminished. The outlook of your musical longevity will be greatly hampered- i guarantee it. Have a nice day 😀

    @Wild Hurricane, I love The Beatles. John Lennon and Paul McCartney provided some of the best vocals and harmonies in all of rock music. The Golden Slumbers-The Weight-The End medly from Abbey Road are some of the best tracks ever layed down on vinyl.
