Beatles a big hit with downloads

The Beatles are back in the US charts thanks to iTunes

Music fans have snapped up more than 450,000 copies of Beatles albums plus two million individual songs during the Fab Four's first week on sale through iTunes.

Apple said the best-selling album by the Fab Four — John Lennon (above), Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr — in the US is Abbey Road and the best-selling individual track is Here Comes The Sun.

The Beatles Box Set, which costs $149, is No 10 on Apple's weekly iTunes top 10 list.

Beatles music went on sale on iTunes on November 16. Until then, the biggest-selling, most influential group in pop history has been glaringly absent from iTunes and other legal online music services.
