Beatles on iTunes…

Verrrry interesting, as Artie Johnson used to say on “Laugh In.”

There was the expected media-mania, hoopla-hype surrounding the release of the Beatles catalog on iTunes last week. OMG! OMG! The Beatles on iTunes! I can’t wait!

And there was the expected backlash, too. Ah, who cares? Doesn’t everybody in the universe already own very little bit of Beatle music that they want?

Apparently not. In the first week of sales, the Beatles sold 450,000 albums plus 2 million individual downloads worldwide (1.4 million individual downloads in the U.S. alone.)

“Abbey Road” was the best-selling album. And “Here Comes the Sun” was the best-selling song in the U.S.
