Good Morning, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney!

Well gentlemen, it took some time but the Beatles have finally hit the big leagues. And by that we mean the iTunes music store.

The Wall Street Journal wrote that Apple (Inc., you guys, not Studios) is expected to announce the deal today. Yesterday they teased the news with a message on their homepage saying “Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget,” most likely a reference to that solo song by you, Sir Paul, and the first of many Beatles puns sure to come. For its part, The Journal went with “Steve Jobs is nearing the end of his long and winding pursuit of the Beatles catalog.”

Moreover, it’s the second year in a row that the band has taken the holiday season by storm. Last year, it was thanks to the Beatles Rock Band video game, which was admittedly a couple tentacles short of an octopus’ garden, if you catch our meaning.

Dammit! It’s just too easy.
