£10.99 for an album seems a bit steep though on itunes
if you haven't got them yet, you probably aren't arsed enough to all rush and get them.
online today, they will definitely chart
for a start, there's too much choice, so the people who do take this opportunity to get a Beatles album will be spread pretty thinly on each record.
I'll send you a pound.
Whichever ones they do on Beatles Week X Factor
What did you expect?
I simply cannot believe there is ANYBODY in the planet who would need to buy these. Surely if you were that big a fan you'd have all their releases, rereleases and rererereleases and just import them on your computer?
As much as I totally get the live for them, I CANNOT wait for a day when they still don't outsell everybody else in the world despite making nothing new for 40 years.
The Beatles albums have always been expensive. Before the remastered version came out last year I bought The Beatles for £15 or so. For that price though, you would want a CD.
I'll take a Beatles song for #1, just as long as it isn't Hey Jude.
It HAS to be number 1! :D
From 2:56 to 2:58 of the song, someone can be heard to say, "Hit the wrong chord!", followed by, "Oh, fucking hell!" There is some dispute as to who said this. According to sound engineers Ken Scott and Geoff Emerick it was McCartney, and it was Lennon's idea to leave the mistake in the final mix. "'Paul hit a clunker on the piano and said a naughty word,' Lennon gleefully crowed, 'but I insisted we leave it in, buried just low enough so that it can barely be heard. Most people won't ever spot it...but we'll know it's there.'" However, in the book Recording The Beatles, engineer Malcolm Toft recalls, "Barry Sheffield engineered 'Hey Jude', but I mixed it... John Lennon says a very rude word about halfway through the song. At 2:59 you will hear a 'whoa' from him in the background. About two seconds later you will hear, 'f***ing hell!' This was because when he was doing a vocal backing, Barry sent him the foldback level [headphone volume] too loud and he threw the cans on the ground and uttered the expletive. But, because it had been bounced down [mixed] with the main vocal, it could not be removed. I just managed to bring the fader down for a split second on the mix to try to lessen the effect." Others argue that the voice is Ringo Starr's.
i thought it was someone saying "help", cos he sings "she loves you" later as well.
Victory for real music from 40 years ago. Smug smug smug.
