Update: The Beatles $149 Box Set In ITunes Top 10, Along with 3 Other Albums


UPDATE November 17th, 4:45pm: the box set is now number 10, and “Abbey Road,” “Sgt. Pepper” and “the White Album” are also in the ITunes Top 10. Success? Oh yes.

The Beatles have been on ITunes for less than 24 hours and this is where they stand already.

On the singles charts, the Fab Four haven’t cracked the top 20, but they’re all over the place otherwise.

22-“Here Comes the Sun,” 29-“Let It Be,” 31-“In My Life,” 36-“Blackbird,” 40-“Come Together,” and 59 “Hey Jude.”

Things are considerably better on the album charts, where the ITunes Number 12 download is the $149 Beatles Box Set.

The other Beatles albums to chart right away are:

6- “Abbey Road,” 8-“The White Album,” 9-“Sgt. Pepper,” 15-“1967-70 (Blue album),” 18-“1962-66 (red album),” 19-“Rubber Soul,” 20-“Magical Mystery Tour,” 21- “Revolver,” and 25 – “Let it Be.”

So yeah, essentially, it was a good plan.
