You'll never know how much I really love you, you'll never know how much I really care. Listen, do you want to know a secret? The Beatles catalog will finally effing be available on iTunes.

"The day we’ll never forget has come a day early, apparently: Apple’s big iTunes reveal is the inclusion of the Beatles catalog, according to the Wall Street Journal," reports The Wrap.

Apple posted a teaser announcement on its homepage today with the cryptic message that reads, “Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget," followed by a directive to check back tomorrow for "an exciting announcement from iTunes."

WSJ posted the years-awaited catalog news citing unnamed sources close to the deal. The absorption of The Beatles catalog into iTunes' veritable Library of Congress of mp3 masterpieces is the missing link, or perhaps the capstone, of its digital music fortress.
