Apple has finally acquired the rights to have the Beatles on iTunes. I personally have all the Beatles music I want through CDs, and have no need to download it. Thoughts?

Was this seriously their big announcement that would make us "never forget" this day? Pffft.

Also, as a side note, the other bands/artists Apple don't have the rights to are AC/DC and "The most authentic man in Rock 'n Roll."

What is this "buying music" thing you speak of?

No. I thought they were selling them already, actually.

Buy? Music? As in, for a reason other than supporting the artist (The Beatles don't need any more support)?
Give money to Apple?
Spend money on something that is not a service, but which I cannot physicaly hold? 

Hell
Fucking
No.

It is actually a lyric from a paul mcartney song.  It was more or less a clue.  "Tomorrow is just another day. That you'll never forget."  Is true about all tomorrows it's the beauty of the line.  
 
OT I will buy some, I lost my copy of the white album 4 years ago, and also wanted to always get help.

Me too, I was always more of a Stones guy. What little I like of the Beatles I was able to get off their "One" CD that my mom bought.

The only person I know that likes the Beatles enough to buy their music has already bought their CDs. And I showed her how to rip them, so she has no need to buy through iTunes. I can't imagine a true Beatles fan somehow not already owning most of their work.

I don't hate many kinds of music. 
... But I hate the Beatles. A few of their songs are pretty good, but theres so much garbage they made that people seem to love.  
You know, I really think that's it: I probably would think they were *okay*, but the reverence people show them gets under my skin. I would never have *liked* the Beatles, but I wouldn't have despised them either.

Is there anyone that was clamoring to buy their music on iTunes?  Apple seriously needs to rethink what's 'news' and get over themselves.

I'm a ridiculous Beatles fan, to the point where I feel that anyone who doesn't like The Beatles has only heard their most popular stuff and has missed out on their deeper material. Yes, Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds has survived better than A Day In The Life in the public's consciousness (probably thanks to its appearance in Yellow Submarine,) but ADITL is a WAY better song.

I think The Beatles are great. If I didn't already have their stuff on CD, I'd certainly go and buy it on CD and not itunes. Yeah.

I don't even bother with iTunes, really, I'd just buy their huge album collection at Wal-mart or Best Buy or something.

yea first I don't buy anything apple related or from apple/itunes, second while there is a small number of beatles songs I like I don't ever buy their music. I have been to a  paul mccartney concert at MSG and it was great but it's not really my kind of music.

Bought the mono box set a long time ago (as well as the loose stereo albums that weren't included). No need for this.

Have the LPs. Got the first CDs. Upgraded to the Stereo and Mono box sets (and donated the older CDs) which have been ripped lossless to my library. So... no.

so true 
TC who says that he has all his music from CD's is probly just lying 
unless its only the beatles which is more plausible that he would have all their CD's

Kinda wonder if they're too late at this point with selling this music that's been around for like 40 years.  Who was waiting for "the iTunes release" to get this music?
 
Also, as far as the significance of this, obviously it's not quite what Apple's hyperbole was suggesting.  At the same time, it's certainly worth noting given the history between Apple Records and Apple Computer.

Nope. Anyone who cares about Beatles already have some form of media with the Beatles that they're comfortable with.

You mean Kid Rock? I just checked, they have Kid Rock on there. I think you meant Kid Rock, I've heard nobody's more authentic than him.
 
I already have just about all the Beatles' stuff on CD, but I think I might see if they have Day Tripper.

That would be true If I didn't used to wake up every sunday to Breakfast with The Beatles. It was a show that would air on a talk radio station that I used to fall asleep to. I just really think they are overrated. They play alright music but, then again, I am a huge blues fan so that might have something to do with it.
