Tomorrow Never Knows - New Beatles Album

Today, Tuesday 24 July 2012 sees the release of a new Beatles record, exclusively on the Apple iTunes Store. This compilation record attempts to bring together some of The Beatles' most influential rock songs.

The question is of course who will buy this "record", since it will not be released in any physical form. Real Beatle fans have of course these songs already in their posession, and non-Beatle fans will have to be convinced that these songs really represent what the Beatles are.

The choice of songs are sometimes very peculiar. Some were already releases on the "Rock 'n' Music" compilation from 1976, and others were not really "rock" but more "psychedelic". If the idea was to show how influential the Beatles were, then surely songs like "Savoy Truffle" or even "Paperback Writer" could easily have been replaced by "Taxman", "Rain" or "She's a Woman".

All songs written by Lennon–McCartney, except where noted.

 1."Revolution" – 3:25
 2."Paperback Writer" – 2:19
 3."And Your Bird Can Sing" – 1:59
 4."Helter Skelter" – 4:31

 6."I'm Down" – 2:32
 7."I've Got a Feeling" (Let It Be... Naked version) – 3:38
 8."Back in the U.S.S.R." – 2:44
 9."You Can't Do That" – 2:35
 10."It's All Too Much" (Harrison) – 6:26
 11."She Said She Said" – 2:36
