Top 10 Beatles Songs For an Apple announcement?

Yesterdays post about Apple, iTunes and speculation about the up coming release of DRM-Free music was popular and got a lot of hits. 

Apple has a tendency for showy announcements so I’ve predicted that DRM-Free songs will be released on iTunes in a  high profile way (speculatively alongside the iPhone launch, and with the announcement of the availability of the Beatles catalog being released too)

That got me thinking.  Beatles song Lovely Rita played during a prior iPhone announcement.  If my guess is right, what Beatles song will play next?  If any Beatles song will play in the background during an announcement of DRM-Free music, the launch of the iPhone, or roll out of the Beatles songbook to the digital domain, what would it be. 

With so many classic songs, and obscure ones, out there, the choices are many. 

The email lines are open for an impromptu poll. I’ve created an email account for just this at  Send a message, or a leave a comment on the site (If your comment doesn’t post immediately, don’t worry. First time posts are moderated to prevent spam).

  2. Come Together

(lyrics: “One thing I can tell you is you got to be free ; Come together right now over me”)

  1. Hello, Goodbye

(lyrics: “Hello, hello, I don’t why you say goodbye, I Say hello”)

As an honorable mention, there’s also Get Back with the lyrics: “Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner, But he knew it wouldn’t last.”

To make the speculation a little more  interesting – and interactive —  If this guess turns turns out to be correct and a Beatles song does play (not just for the roll out of the Beatles, but as part of a bigger announcement including either the iPhone, the DRM-Free music or both).  Metue will send a $25 iTunes gift card to the first person who responded (by email or comment) with a guess of the correct song Apple plays.
