NME reports that "Hey Jude" is the most popular BEATLES track on iTunes UK, whereas Billboard tells us that "Here Comes the Sun" is the winner in the US. Could it be that America has better taste in the Beatles than their native isle? Or did we just mistake it for Smash Mouth's "Walkin' on the Sun"?

But I guess it's a moot point, since the Black Eyed Peas are creaming the Fab Four on both sides of the pond.
