Even more incredible than the Fab Four beating out Wayne right now is the fact that they're doing it with a compilation featuring 28 songs that every Beatles fan already owns. Though $9.99 for all of the Beatles' #1 hits is a good deal, for zero dollars, fans could simply have created the same 28-song collection by dragging the tracks from all those Beatles albums they already own and placing them in an iTunes playlist called "1." It's that hard to believe that, 40 years after the Fab Four split, there are still enough nascent Beatles fans out there to catapult the band into the top spot in Tha Carter IV's second week on sale.
