Beatles top tunes on your mobile
Hits from The Beatles have finally joined the chorus of ringtones available for mobile phones.
Catchy 30-second snippets from more than two dozen of the famed 1960s British rock band’s top tunes are available exclusive at Apple’s online iTunes shop, a message at official website thebeatles.com said.
The Beatles arrived on iTunes in November 2010 after what late Apple’s Steve Jobs described at the time as a long and winding road.
A decade had been spent getting the music of Fab Four – Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – released in digital form for Apple’s wildly popular mobile devices.
The vast catalogue of Beatles hits had been held back for years from internet download sites amid legal squabbles, although their songs have long circulated as unlicensed downloads available from unlicensed peer-to-peer networks.
