The Long and Winding Road to Beatles catalogue on iTunes

By Alexandra Petri

Q: Beatles on iTunes? Nowhere, man. Tell me why? No reply. Nothin' Shakin'. For no one.

Got to get you into my life. Please please me. We can work it out.

Long, long, long. Crying, waiting, hoping. Too much monkey business! What goes on? Tell me why.

A: You know what to do. You never give me your money. Money (That's what I want.)

Do you want to know a secret?

Can't buy "Can't Buy me love?"

It won't be long! Wait.

The word: There's a place.

Come together! Come and get it! Baby, you're a rich man.

Beatles catalog? I'm looking through you.

Don't ever change. Don't let me down.


(Yes, iTunes will be selling the Beatles catalogue!

The reason I am most in favor of this is, because of online sales, the Glee Cast has more Hot 100 entries than the Beatles. I have no objections to the Glee cast. I would gladly eat sandwiches with any of them, especially Curt, who seems like he'd be fun. But this needs to end, and it needs to end now. Everyone, let's become suddenly enthused by "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!")

You must have had a Hard Day’s Night if you expect me to buy this Ticket To Ride to Yesterday. From Me To You, I Feel Fine without some Paperback Writer like you reminding me of when I was a Day Tripper married to Eleanor Rigby living on Penny Lane.

Maybe We Can Work It Out, but if you can’t Love Me, Do you think you could at least acknowledge that I Want To Hold Your Hand? I’m tired of The Long And Winding Road of Hello, Goodbye we’ve been on 8 Days A Week since we started trying to Come Together (not THAT way, perverts).

I know you never Get Back to me, and I should Let It Be. I also know that Money Can’t Buy Me Love, but do YOU realize that All You Need Is Love? I asked my roommate, “Hey Jude, do you know Something that might Help?” He said we should get in the old Yellow Submarine, drop you and your roommate, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds; and only listen to that Lady, Madonna songs. We’re now headed for La Isla Bonita!
