Will the Beatles Crash Spotify, Apple Music When They Start Streaming on Thursday?


The Beatles are coming to Spotify and Apple Music on Thursday– streaming for the first time anywhere.

Will they crash the systems when their songs all hit at the same time? My guess is Yes.

I have actually confirmed that the Fab Four finally gave in to the streaming services. This may account for Paul McCartney’s sudden flurry of public appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and at Nets and Rangers games over the weekend. That’s his way of doing P.R.

A new Beatles juggernaut is coming. Something tells me Christmas morning the Beatles will hold some new records for old records.

Keep refreshing…
