iTunes + Lawyers + 7 Years = The Beatles

Its been a long and winding road for iTunes to get access to one of the most prolific bands in the history of music, the Beatles. As of 7 a.m. Pacific time tomorrow (Nov. 16th) the Beatles catalog is officially available to invade your ipod.

Apple is teasing their accomplishment by using this splash page on their website tonight:

This little buzz-worthy teaser ad is providing some helpful hints on what the announcement will be (not that it's a big secret anymore). The first line is, "Tomorrow is just another day." Another Day is a Paul McCartney song released on his solo record "Ram," but written during the Beatles' "Let it Be" sessions. page features four clocks, each with the arms in different positions, (denoting the time of the announcement in California, New York, London and Tokyo time zones). Pretty unnecessary unless you compare it to the cover of the Beatles' "Help!" album, featuring all four members side by side with their arms also in different positions.

*Video was created by a fan in 2007 for an "expected" announcement. Better late then never.
