♪♫ The Beatles explore the white space

By Melissa Bell

On this day, 42 years ago, the the original boy band released an album with a nondescript white record cover, with just two words written on it: "The Beatles." The "White Album" as it came to be known was one of the most unusual mixes of music -- four musicians straining to go their own ways, uniting to create a sprawling, wonderful masterpiece.

In 42 years, the songs' fame has yet to diminish. As of Monday, 24 of the top 100 songs on iTunes are by the Beatles. Three of those songs are from the "White Album."
