Sitting On A Cornflake Waiting For The Van To Come

Beatles Rock Band screengrab

The lyrics from I am the Walrus make as much sense as anything else I’ve heard today about the Beatles and iTunes as 09-09-09 hysteria builds. The latest: claims that Yoko Ono (which would be pronounced Oh-No if this is all true) told Sky News that the availability of the Beatles catalog in iTunes would be announced Wednesday. At the same time, the FT reported that an EMI exec said no announcement was coming tomorrow. Sky was forced to backtrack quickly, pulling the story, according to 9to5Mac. (via Engadget)

For those who have been blessedly out of the loop, Wednesday is the day the Beatles’ remastered catalog goes on sale along with Beatles Rock Band edition; Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) also has a press cluster scheduled. That would make it a natural day for a grand announcement that the former litigants have come together, right? Not so fast. Ernesto Schmitt, EMI
