Tech, Autos, & Gear in Layman's Terms Since 2006

The Beatles Allow Us to Once Again Pay Full Song Prices for Ringtones on iTunes!

I have frequently said that it feels like after Apple showed the potential for a new path in which the carrier worried about signal and the device maker worried about the phone, Android has ushered us back to the ‘bad old days’ in terms of carrier bloatware, handset makers skinning away the performance of their hardware to ‘differentiate’, no two handsets alike that kills accessories (thank goodness for the EU and required micro-USB chargers!), and so on.

Apparently Apple felt left out and decided to bring us back to over-priced ringtones! While not as egregious as the ‘$12 5-pack bundle’ bargain my wife bought for non-transferrable ringtones on Verizon back in 2008, they are still priced at $1.29 each – identical to the full song price!

The 27 ringtones are all from the top-selling collection ‘1’, which recounts the Fab Four’s chart-topping classics.

What are those songs? Here is the full track listing:

1 Love Me Do
2 From Me to You
3 She Loves You
4 I Want to Hold Your Hand
5 Can’t Buy Me Love
6 A Hard Day’s Night
7 I Feel Fine
8 Eight Days a Week
9 Ticket to Ride
10 Help!
11 Yesterday
12 Day Tripper
13 We Can Work It Out
14 Paperback Writer
15 Yellow Submarine
16 Eleanor Rigby
17 Penny Lane
18 All You Need Is Love
19 Hello, Goodbye
20 Lady Madonna
21 Hey Jude
22 Get Back
23 The Ballad of John and Yoko
24 Something
25 Come Together
26 Let It Be
27 The Long and Winding Road
