iTune Users Surprised At The Beatles Success While Sounding Like Compressed Crap
iTune users have been left a little 'shocked' and 'surprised' that the Beatles got so big while sounding like compressed, whining cack. The lack of dynamics and the total lifelessness of the tracks has left many bewildered.
New young fans have re-named some albums as Rubber Soulless, Magical Mystery Bore and Crappy Road.
"That George Martin is no Timbaland is he?" complained one iPod user. "I had to turn it up to 11 to hear it squashed properly. Help! It's gone way beyond that. I bet Martin was a deserter during the loudness wars."
Apple had spent many years in negotiations with the remaining Beatles and two old women trying desperately to keep the Beatles sound and integrity but an offer of more money was all it took. All four said let it be and now it's Beatles for sale once again.
"It's a drag but I'll be interested to see if the ones I wrote sell more than the ones dead John wrote," said Sir Paul McCartney, who gave a thumbs regardless of the question, answer or the weather.
"Yellow Submarine is wank in digital or vinyl," said Ringo
"Kerching!" said EMI in a carefully worded statement.
The Beatles have sold a staggering 30 million albums in the past decade due to people buying their stuff two or three times for some unknown reason. It's expected that people will once again buy the albums off iTunes even though they already have them on record, CD and illegal downloads. It's estimated that everyone in the world has a least one copy or access to everything they've ever done but they will continue buy. People bought the Anthology to save them the bother of sorting their Beatles collection.
