Curious to know whether it is a coincidence that there is an apple music announcement on September the 9th, and it is the same day that the complete Beatles digitally remastered CD's are being released?????:rolleyes:

If you actually do a decent look around on the net, you'll find that initially it started with the Beatles: Rock Band release date being announced, and only THEN did EMI decide to release the remasters on the same day to coincide with it. If the Rock Band game had not been developed then we may have already seen the remasters released. But in the end the remasters are coming out on the 9th solely because it's the same date as the game.
I just think it's a coincidence to be honest:
- Rock Band announced first, EMI decides to cash in by throwing out the new CDs on the same day even though the project was completed months ago.
- It's intended for these to be released on 09/09/09, because the number '9' is well associated with the band for many reasons (and no, I'm not just pulling it out of thin air, Google it).
- Apple has traditionally held their music events within the first couple weeks of September, on a Tuesday.
Plus I think it's a little ironic that the invitiations to the media event just happened to use the lyrics to a Rolling Stones track, how inappropriate if they were going to end up announcing The Beatles coming to iTunes... *eyeroll*
