On November 16, 2010 The Beatles came to iTunes. The ever-popular Liverpool band was one of the big holes in Apple's digital music offering, and an option long pursued by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who also happens to be a huge fan of the Fab Four. In two months, 5 million songs and 1 million albums of The Beatles have been sold through iTunes, Apple told The Loop.
Two weeks after the initial release, Apple announced 2 million songs had been sold. Clearly sales have slowed down a bit, but it's an impressive figure nonetheless. And just like when 2 million songs were already out of iTunes, the most popular album is "Abbey Road". Most popular song in the U.S. is "Here Comes The Sun".
November 16 might not be a day we'll never forget, but it sure marked the beginning of a lucrative relationship between Apple and The Beatles.
