$150 for Every Beatles Song on iTunes

We love the Beatles and are honored and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “It has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realizing a dream we’ve had since we launched iTunes ten years ago.”


It has taken Apple more than 7 years, finally..all of the Beatles songs are available on iTunes. The entire Beatles back-catalog is available at once for $150.

“I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes,” stated Ringo Starr. “At last, if you want it—you can get it now—The Beatles from Liverpool to now! Peace and Love, Ringo.”


It is strange that the day “we’ll never forget” is the day Apple announced the availability of the 40+ year old music from the Beatles at the iTunes Store
