Beatles dominate iTunes Top 200 charts

Apple, Digital Music, iTunes, Tech Digest news

Beatles tracks are now littered all over the iTunes Top 200 charts after becoming available through the digital download service for the first time yesterday.

Though some were disappointed that The Beatles announcement didn’t come as a side dish to a larger iTunes update, sales figures so far show the Mearseybeat quartet are as popular as ever.

As Tech Digest’s own Ashley Norris tweeted “I think [the] cynicism is more about iTunes than The Beatles, saying you don’t like Beatles is like saying you don’t like breathing”.

38 songs are in the top 200, with the highest entry being Hey Jude at number 33.

Sure, they’re not going straight in at Number One, but it’s not bad going for songs 40 years old and already owned by half the world two or three times over!
